Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children from Services families. This also includes any pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.

Schools are free to spend their Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, we will be held to account for how we have used the additional funding to narrow the gap for these targeted pupils. We are required to publish online how we have used the premium. This is to ensure that parents and other stakeholders are made fully aware of the impact of this additional resourcing on learning and achievement outcomes within our school.

Main objectives of the Pupil Premium Plan

• To narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils
nationally and also within internal school data.
• For disadvantaged pupils in school to demonstrate expected progress rates in order to reach
Age Related Expectation at the end of Year 6 and thus achieve GCSE’s in English and Maths
Achieving these objectives.

The range of provision the trustees consider making for this group include and would not be limited to:
-Support for children that need it the most through classroom & wider support
-Provide robust language and communication support
– Additional teaching and learning opportunities
-All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress, moving children
to age-related expectations and enabling more children to reach Greater Depth in all subjects
across the curriculum.
-Transition from primary to secondary and transition internally and into EYFS
– Additional learning support.
-Pay for all activities, educational visits and residentials. Ensuring children have enriching
experiences to draw on in their learning.
– Support the funding of specialist learning software.
-To allow the children to learn a musical instrument across the whole school
-Ensure children have the best start to the day with a fully funded breakfast club
This list is not exhaustive and will change according to the needs and support our socially
disadvantaged pupils require.
