Pupil Premium

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.

Our Aims for Pupil Premium

  • To narrow the attainment gap between children who receive pupil premium funding and those who do not.
  • To enable those children receiving pupil premium funding to make expected progress by the end of Key Stage 1
  •  To enable those children receiving pupil premium funding to make at least expected progress between Key Stage 1 and 2
  •  To ensure that all children have equal opportunity to attend residential visits which will have positive impact upon their well-being

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.
