The Pupil Premium is part of the School’s budget that is specifically to provide funding for two government policies:
- raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential; and
- supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based on the number of eligible pupils. This includes children who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any time in the last six years, looked-after children and those who have been adopted. There is also an allocation for the children of families in the armed services.
All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress and moving children to at least age-related expectations. The funding may be used to improve attendance or support emotional, social issues that may be impacting on learning.
Recent successes have included working with individual pupils to improve their reading by providing additional phonics teaching and reading time. Our ELSA trained teaching assistant provides 1:1 coaching for pupil premium children to help them identify how to improve their work and review their learning. Children tell us how their learning and behaviour have improved through the use of anger management programmes, group work or bespoke social skills work.
Each year the school reviews the outcomes and needs of our Pupil Premium pupils and other vulnerable pupils and plans how to use the Pupil Premium fund. The reviews and plans can be found here. The use of the Pupil Premium, is in line with our Pupil Premium Policy.
