Pupil Premium Strategy
In 2011, the Government introduced a Pupil Premium. This is in addition to Schools main funding and is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals.
We believe strongly that the pupil premium should be used creatively to make enhanced impact on children entitled to FSM. Evidence – e.g. Sutton Trust report- suggests that ‘catch up’ programmes that are not tailored to individual needs are often ineffective.
- Direct interventions (1-1, group) to improve achievement
- Development work with teachers and support staff to improve targeted teaching
- Specific interventions to improve the context for learning for individuals or groups (e.g. mentoring)
- Tailored resources that will impact on achievement of individuals or groups.
Our pupil premium income for children entitled to free school meals is detailed below:
- Number of pupils in receipt of Free School Meals during 2020/21 - 46
- Amount of pupil premium received in 2020/21 - £89,390
- Amount of pupil premium received in 2019/20 - £81,356
- Amount of pupil premium received in 2018/19 - £70,600
- Amount of pupil premium received in 2017/18 - £71,120

Strategy in respect of Pupil Premium allocation
Now in our new school, the management will continue to look closely at the progress and attainment of our PP children through the termly progress meeting.
Additional adult, group or individual support for PP children will be made available where necessary.
We are accountable for the way we use Pupil Premium and must demonstrate impact.
