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 disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and thier peers" (www.gov.uk)
We will receive £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.
Our Pupil Premium review was conducted in April 2018. Please click on the document below to read the full report.
Please not- outcomes information was based on July 2017 outcomes.
Children and pupils in all classes were fully engaged in lessons and enjoying their learning. Relationships between teachers and pupils were universally good.
Behaviour around the school was excellent
The attitude of all pupils involved in this process (lunchtime family service) was outstanding and a testament to the school’s high expectations.
Pupils, including those supported by PP funding, demonstrate excellent attitudes to learning.
Generally, pupil premium pupils attend well but persistent absence remains too high.
Planning for how PP funding is used is clear and costs are broken down effectively
