Pupil premium is paid to schools by the government in order to close the gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and other pupils.

Ofsted's report in May 2014 recognises the support Millbrook makes to closing the gap, stating that:
The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium, which is extra government funding for particular groups, including pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, and looked after children is well above the national average.
Pupils who benefit from pupil premium support have accelerated their progress because of extra adult help. As a result, previous gaps in attainment between these pupils and other pupils at the end of Year 6 in 2013, of nearly six months in reading and writing and mathematics, have all been closed. Pupils supported by the pupil premium now achieve as well as other pupils and are making good progress.
The Pupil Premium Impact Report for 2016/17 describes what impact the funding has had on improving attainment and narrowing gaps for disadvantaged pupils. Please see link below.
