What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil premium funding is described by the government as:
"Additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvanted pupils and close the gap between them and thier peers" (www.gov.uk)
During 2016-2017 school year we will recieive £1320 per pupil for every child who has been eligible for free school meals in the last 6 years. We will also receive £1900 for a child who is looked after.
What is our vision for Pupil Premium Spend?
The key objective for us when planning the pupil premium spend is to narrow any gaps there may be between pupil groups, for example those eligible for free school meals and those who are not. Our pupil premium spend plan holds the highest aspirations for all in line with our vision of Believe, Belong, Achieve.
Many of our children start with low attainment on entry, however we work tirelessly to identify this and ensure through carefully targeted use of the pupil premium funding we work to eliminate barriers to learning and ensure expected and exceeding progress for all.
We are held to account as are our governing body for reporting our pupil premium spend and its impact. Click on the documents below to find out how we spend our pupil premium allocation last year and our plan for 2016-2017.
