Pupil Premium

We understand that every child is an individual and we provide a range of different interventions and enrichment activities to help our children reach their full potential.

What is the Pupil Premium?

Ref: Pupil Premium: Overview (.gov.website)

'Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.'

How much additional funding does the school receive?

2022/23 financial year: £1,385 pp (Free School Meals) £2,410 pp (children looked after or adopted)

2023/24 financial year: £1,455 pp (Free School Meals) £2,530 pp (children looked after or adopted)

How will the money be spent?

School leaders must ensure that funding is used effectively to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils.

Evidence suggests that pupil premium spending is most effective when used across 3 areas:

1. high-quality teaching, such as staff professional development
2. targeted academic support, such as tutoring
3. wider strategies to address non-academic barriers to success in schools, such as attendance, behaviour, and social and emotional support

'Schools do not have to spend pupil premium so it solely benefits eligible pupils. They can use it wherever they identify the greatest need.'

'Using pupil premium funding to improve teaching quality is the most effective way to improve outcomes for disadvantaged pupils. By doing so, schools will inevitably benefit non-eligible pupils as well.'

How do we allocate this funding to support your child?

We recognise that in order for our children to thrive and achieve their very best, we need to consider the 'whole child' and respond to each child's individual needs.  Our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement explains in detail how the funding has been allocated and this is reviewed and  changes each year in response to the children's learning needs as they grow and move through the different phases in school.

All children have individual targets which are reviewed regularly by their class teacher.  Miss Lawson and Mrs Shaw oversee the delivery of any additional support programmes and interventions in place to meet your child's needs.
