What Is The Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from Reception to Year 11.
The Pupil Premium Grant provides funding for two policies:
Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers; and
Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.
In 2018 – 2019 we received £39 200 (Indicative Report – School Budget Share) in Pupil Premium funding which was used to:
To provide a wide and innovative variety of intervention programmes for identified pupils.
To purchase various resources as appropriate to support identified pupils.
To provide individual and small group tuition for identified pupils.
To create opportunities for rigorous on-going assessment and monitoring of progress/attainment for identified pupils.
Pupil Premium Action Plan
Pupil Premium spending for 2019-20 was decided upon after consultation with a wide variety of stakeholders with regards to the main barriers to educational achievement and data analysis by the Senior Leadership Team. We also completed a Pupil Premium audit alongside another school and a National Leader for education (Summer 2019).
This work identified the main barriers identified were as follows:
- o Social, emotional and behavioural difficulties
o Mental/ emotional health difficulties
o Sensitivity when extending and enriching the curriculum and clubs that no child is excluded due to financial family need
o Mid-year admission (increasing)
o Poor emotional resilience and self-regulation skills impact on many pupils’ ability to work collaboratively and to accept a degree of challenge in their learning
o Children lack the aspiration necessary to achieve in all aspects of life
