Pupil Premium was first introduced by the Government in 2011. It is a sum of money awarded to schools to help improve the outcomes for disadvantage children.
For children from Reception to Year 6 who are, or have ever been, entitled to free school meals based on family income, schools receive £1345 per pupil.
For children in care, schools receive £2345.
For children from Service Families, schools receive £310 per child
Schools can decide how to spend this money and through careful planning it can help to improve the outcomes for all children in school.
Our strategy document, based on research identifies what we see as the challenges and priorities in helping our children achieve great things and good outcomes at the end of the different key stages.

Support Funded through Pupil Premium allocation
From September 2020 the Pupil Premium funding is being used to maintain the class structure across the school. This will enable children to receive support where needed as well as intervention provided by COVID 19 catch up funding. This will be provided through class teachers, teaching assistants and intervention staff. It will enable every child to access the curriculum of their year group whole provide catch up programmes to those children who may have greater gaps.
Children in receipt of the Pupil Premium funding will continue to be closely monitored by class teachers and the Head Teacher. They will continue to monitor, intervene and advise staff working with pupil premium children to ensure they continue to make at least expected progress. Class teachers and the Head will meet termly to discuss the children in their care, proritising need and developing strategies. Provision to address learning priorities will be decided at this meeting with actions put in place by SENCo. Class teachers and teaching assistants. Support might be offered on a short term basis e.g. for half an hour for 3 weeks or for a more sustained period of time, depending on need. In a few cases support from external agencies will be sought.
Families in receipt of free school meals will be provided with a voucher to use when purchasing school uniform.
