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 Much Pupil Premium will the school receive this year?
How did we spend last year’s Pupil Premium?
Last year we received £21,540 of Pupil Premium. This was made up of 12 pupils receiving £1320 Pupil Premium and 3 pupils receiving £1900 Pupil Premium plus.
The majority of this funding was used to finance a HLTA with experience across the primary age range to provide targeted and in class support.
Funding was also used to ensure that children receiving Pupil Premium funding were able to access activities within and outside the school day thus promoting wellbeing and engagement for these children.
Funding was used to provide social and emotional support for children through ‘friendship’ groups, individual and group support and pastoral support for families.
