Our Pupil Premium
Pupil Premium Funding
The pupil premium is additional funding provided to schools from the Government. Additional information can be found by clicking here. For 2020/2021, the government announced an additional one-off funding boost to support children to catch-up lost learning time caused by the first national lockdown due to coronavirus. To find out more about the coronavirus catch-up premium, click here. As a school we are no longer using recovery catch up funding.
Closing the attainment gap between disadvantaged children and their peers is our greatest challenge.
Great teaching and careful planning can make a huge impact on the outcomes of disadvantaged children.
Our evidenced-informed approach to Pupil Premium spending has helped us to:
- Provided targeted support to secure progress for all
- Understand the strength of evidence behind alternative approaches
- Consider the likely cost-effectiveness of a range of approaches
We use the EEF’s tiered approach which focuses on improving teaching, providing targeted academic support and wider strategies to remove non-academic barriers to success in school, including attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support. We have also used the ‘Effective pupil premium reviews: A guide developed by the Teaching Schools Council’ document when writing our strategy
During this financial year 2023-2024 - the school has anticipated that we will receive £34,920 of pupil premium funding. Our pupil premium expenditure and strategy is below.
