Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the schools budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. In the 2016/17 school year the school received £5,624.

In 2016/17 the Pupil Premium was used in a variety of ways. These included:

  • Use of additional TA support to deliver personalised intervention programmes
  • Provision of new school uniform
  • Payment of school meals
  • Provision of extra-curricular activities of children both in and out of school
  • Use of breakfast club
  • Use of specified targeted services

Examples of impact in 2016/17 include:

Vulnerable children make steady progress in-line with their peers.

Increased pupil well-being, confidence and raised self-esteem.

Pupils have access to all extra-curricular activities, including attendance at sport after school clubs.

In 2017/18 the Pupil Premium will continue to be used to support:

  • Use of additional TA support to deliver personalised intervention programmes
  • Provision of extra-curricular activities of children both in and out of school
  • Use of the breakfast club
  • Provision of new school uniform
  • School meals
  • Additional learning resources

The impact of this money will be reviewed in summary in September 2017 and to inform provision on a termly basis through results analysis and staff pupil / parent discussions.

This year’s allocation will be used to offset barriers to learning such as:

  • The lack of access to wider curriculum opportunities.
  • The development of language and comprehension.
  • The provision of a hot school meal ensures pupil wellbeing and the readiness to learn.
