Pupil Premium

 "Leaders make effective use of pupil premium funding... to provide additional support where needed, both in the classroom and in developing pupils' emotional and social skills"

"The effective teaching of disadvantaged pupils has accelerated their progress and closed the gaps in progress with that of other pupils in the school and nationally"

OFSTED June 2016

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. The grant is based on the number of pupils who have been in receipt of free school meals at any stage in the last six years and the numbers of pupils in Local Authority care.

How much does the school receive and how does it spend it? 

Last year (2014-15) we received £119,600. Based on the evaluations of the previous year’s spending we knew that the greatest impact on learning was achieved through teacher led literacy and maths interventions and more intense learning interventions for short periods. The attendance and learning of targeted pupils also improved significantly through the family support work of our Home School Link Worker, residential trip support and attendance at breakfast club.  Please see the reports below for a full breakdown of last year's spending and the impact this had on educational achievement.
