Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.  It is allocated to schools based on the number of children who come from low-income families.  This includes pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years and pupils who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.

How did we spend last year’s Pupil Premium?

Last year we received £18800 of Pupil Premium.  This was made up of 13 pupils receiving £1300 pupil premium and 1 pupil receiving £1900 Pupil Premium plus.

  • The majority of this funding was used to finance an Inclusion Leader and TA/HLTA support. This enabled us to give targeted 1:1 and small group tuition to eliminate barriers to learning and support children to ensure they make accelerated progress to reach their age related expectations.
  • Funding was also used to provide specific ICT equipment and software to support pupils in different curriculum areas.
  • Staff underwent training to develop expertise in specific areas to support pupils within the classroom and to provide specific intervention programmes.
  • The use of external advisors to help us tailor our interventions to specific pupils and help towards developing excellence in the classroom.
  • Smaller items were also purchased for specific pupils, tailored to their individual needs.
