PUPIL 

PREMIUM

Pupil Premium 

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 2020/21 we received a total pupil premium allocation of £10690

This was used for:

  1. Teaching and learning assistants to support small groups in class.

  2. Teaching and learning assistants to provide small group/individual interventions both in class and virtually.

  3. Staff to provide pastoral support and tailored 1 to 1 sessions.

  4. Resources for specific support/interventions, including resources for phonics, early reading, early maths, practical maths and outdoor learning.

 

The impact of this was:

  1. To increase the adult to child ratios in our class to give additional support for small group work, minimising the impact that mixed year group classes can have.

  2. To provide the children with individual support to improve their progress and attainment.

  3. To give children the opportunity to talk through personal difficulties they may be experiencing, and receive appropriate support in order to reduce the impact this has on their learning and mental well-being.

  4. To have appropriate resources to maximise the impact of interventions/small group work.

 

In 2021/22 the estimated pupil premium allocation is £8830

This will be used for:

  1. Teaching and learning assistants to support small groups in class.

  2. Teaching and learning assistants to provide small group/individual interventions.

  3. Staff to provide pastoral support and tailored 1 to 1 sessions.

  4. Resources for specific support/interventions.

  5. To provide booster sessions for Year 6 pupils.

 

The impact of this will be:

  1. To increase the adult to child ratios in our class to give additional support for small group work, minimising the impact that mixed year group classes can have.

  2. To provide the children with individual support to improve their progress and attainment.

  3. To identify and reduce barriers to learning.

  4. To identify any difficulties children may have with their mental well-being and provide appropriate support.

  5. To have appropriate resources to maximise the impact of interventions/small group work.

  6. To prepare children for their next stage in education.
