Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Pupil Premium

 

The Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school's budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. In 2014/15 the school received £54,400 in Pupil Premium allocations. In 2015/16 this was £49,190  and in 2016/17 it is £42,900.

 

In 2015/16 the Pupil Premium was used in a variety of ways. These included:

  • Additional TA support to deliver personalised intervention programmes and work with groups of children developing specific skills and attributes, such as phonics, reading, speaking and listening, confidence and self-esteem;

  • Employing a Learning Mentor to support vulnerable children and families;
  • Enabling pupils to participate in school residential holidays and educational trips.

 

Examples of impact in 2015/16 include:

  • Identified pupils made at least expected progress, with some exceeding their school targets.
  • The gap between attainment/progress of most vulnerable pupils/identified pupils and their peers has reduced.
  • The Learning Mentor plays a crucial role in supporting all children (including those with Pupil Premium funding) and their families.
  • The work of the Learning Mentor and teaching assistants, in support of class teachers, ensures that behaviour, including behaviour for learning, is outstanding.

 

The school plans to continue with these strategies during 2016/17.
