The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding provided to schools to give extra support to groups of pupils. Pupils are eligible for extra funding if: they have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years; they are in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority (LAC); or they have one or more parent who works or has worked in the armed forces within the last six years.
Pupil Premium is spent on a range of activities and initiatives to ensure the above objectives are met. These include:
- 1:1 tuition to support individual learning in literacy and maths.
- Sessions with specialist TAs to support emotional learning.
- Covering the cost of residential and curriculum visits.
- Mid-morning snacks and milk available for all pupil premium children.
- Music tuition paid for pupil premium children to remove financial barriers
A large part of our pupil premium grant is used to provide extra TA hours. This allows us to provide:
- Intervention programmes to raise attainment in reading, writing and maths.
- Reciprocal groups in reading, writing and maths.
- Small group work or 1:1 support within the classroom.
