In 2011 the Government introduced a new funding stream for schools called the Pupil Premium. The Department for Education states that the Pupil Premium funding, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current inequalities by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. There is also a Service Premium funding for children whose parents are currently serving in our Armed Forces.Use of the Pupil Premium at The GryphonDownload Pupil Premium Strategy StatementDownload Catch Up Funding ReportDownload Pupil Premium LeafletDownload Applying for Free School MealsDownload
It’s less than a week until our Careers and Degree Apprenticeship Fair! Gryphon students will have the opportunity to meet the employers during the day, but there is also an evening session (4.30-7.00pm) when you are welcome to come back with your parents, and it is also open to the public, so any young people in the area who want to find out more about career options are welcome!

As well as some of the region’s top employers, we also have a number of other organisations attending on Wednesday. The Samee Project is a unique and inspirational social enterprise that aims to promote self-employment and freelance working as viable career options to young people in school education.
Chris Wilkinson will be on the stand to talk to students and parents – he was awarded an MBE for his services to the Police. He is also an Animal behaviourist and dog trainer and a Patron of the SAMEE Charity.
