Red Marsh School is a small community school.  As a school we pride ourselves on striving to provide the best possible educational provision for all our pupils in an inclusive and caring environment. The school has high expectations and aspirations for all our pupils, all of whom have complex learning difficulties and many eligible for pupil premium.  There is a real determination to ensure that all our pupils reach their full potential. 

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is a type of funding which was first introduced in April 2011. The school receives the Pupil Premium each financial year from the Dfe, with the amount received determined by the number of pupils receiving free school meals (FSM), are looked after or are from military families. The funding is provided to ensure that these students are not disadvantaged in any way.
