Pupil premium is additional funding provided to schools for supporting more disadvantaged pupils to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children. There are three categories of children who qualify for pupil premium:
- Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been eligible for FSM in the past 6 years (Ever 6).
- Children Looked After (CLA) in the care of the local authority or have ceased to be looked after because of Adoption or special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order.
- Armed forces children
Our annual Pupil Premium strategy outlines how we have allocated these funds, the rationale for this and intended outcome/benefit of that planned allocation. The funding allocation for 2021-22 is £41,350 and is being used for:
- Quality First Teaching with a focus on writing, a whole school approach to phonics teaching and embedding metacognition strategies.
- Receiving targeted individual or small group tutoring and interventions for example phonics, maths and social & emotional or mental health needs
- Financial support for example to access to music tuition, trips and sports clubs
The progress and attainment of all pupils is tracked and monitored carefully to ensure they achieve their full potential.
