Just as with other schools and colleges Plympton Academy receives funding from the Department for Education (DfE) to pay for the education of every student in the academy.
The DfE provides some additional funding to schools and colleges to support students who may face particular difficulties in meeting the costs of schooling- for example paying for extra-curricular activities, or providing educational equipment.
Plympton Academy chooses how to spend this extra funding in order to maximise its impact on learning. You can see how this funding was used in previous years by downloading the Pupil Premium Profile for 2015-16 below.
