The Department for Education defines the Pupil Premium as ‘additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
We are required to publish details of how our school spends its Pupil Premium and the effect this has had on the attainment of pupils who attract the funding.
Due to the small number of Pupils at the School and those receiving Pupil Premium funding, we keep our information on the website more general so that individual children cannot be identified.
In 2018/19 we received a total pupil premium allocation of £1920
This additional funding was used in a variety of ways after individual discussions between the Head teacher and the parents/guardians of the eligible pupils.
This was used for:
Support with School trips/residentials.
This continued to help in a variety of ways:
Enabling all children to access extra-curricular activities.
Providing wider opportunities for all, particularly in music.
Improving confidence and self-worth.
In 2019/20 we will receive a total pupil premium allocation of £3240
This will be used for:
Teaching and Learning assistants to support small groups in class
Teaching assistants to provide small group/individual interventions
Year 6 booster sessions
Staff to provide pastoral support
The impact of this will be:
To give children the opportunity to talk through personal difficulties they may be experiencing, and receive appropriate support
To provide the children with individual support to improve their learning
To prepare the children for the next stage of their education
