How we support Pupil Premium
At Claremont, we are committed to supporting and valuing every member of our school community including those who experience disadvantage. One of our school’s key drivers for 2020-2021 is to “Support a recovery curriculum that ensures explicit links between content and National Curriculum including RHE,
and vulnerable groups.”
