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 2019/20 school year the school received £13,352.

In 2019/20 the Pupil Premium was used in a variety of ways.
These included:

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

Examples of impact in 2019/20 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 2020/21 the Pupil Premium of £9,610 (2 terms; March 2021) will continue to be used to support:

  • Use of additional TA support to deliver personalised intervention programmes
  • ‘Catch up’ sessions in addition to those planned for all children following the closure of schools in March 2020
  • Payment of school meals
  • Provision of extra-curricular activities of children both in and out of school
  • Use of specified targeted services

The impact of this money will be reviewed termly and the findings will be used to inform provision on an ongoing termly basis through results analysis and staff, pupil and 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 ensuring pupil well-being and the readiness to learn.  
  • Support transition from KS2 to KS3
