Pupil Premium

The Government provides academies and schools with additional funding to help reduce inequalities and gaps in attainment between those students who are on free school meals (FSM) and their peers. This funding is called the Pupil Premium.

Every academy and school can select how they choose to use their Pupil Premium allocation to meet the specific needs of their children. Every school needs to be held accountable for how this money is spent, which is why we make details of how it is used available on all our websites.

The person responsible for the Pupil Premium allocation is Karen Stevenson (Deputy Head and SENCO).

Planned Impact of the Pupil Premium funding:

  • Improve self-confidence progress for PP children so their progress is as good as or better than non PP children to narrow the gap.
  • Progress of PP children is in line with peers and the attainment gap is lower than national as they have access to enrichment activities
  • PP children have attended at least one school run after school in the year and have attended class trips
  • The gap in attainment between children supported by pupil premium and children not supported by pupil premium at the end of all year groups will be lower than the national gap.T6
  • All children supported by pupil premium will make good or better progress from their baseline or year group starting point. 
  • The gap between the attainment of PP and non PP children will decrease at each KPI point throughout the year.
  • PP children will complete home learning weekly in line with rest of class 
  • Attendance gap for PP vs non PP is narrowed term on term
  • Parental engagement for PP parents is in line with non PP parents – attendance at assemblies, plays, open sessions, information sessions
  • Number of families needing FSW support, EHA’s and higher decreases
