Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.

This year, our school has been allocated £77 880 under the Pupil Premium initiative. The funding is being used in the following ways:

  • Employing a Parent Support Advisor to support behaviour, attendance and children’s social/emotional development.
  • Employing a Learning Mentor to support behaviour, attendance and children’s social/emotional development.
  • Social skills and Anger/Behaviour management groups
  • Targeted support clubs (e.g. homework clubs; Y6 breakfast club)
  • Intervention Programmes for children identified as needing to make accelerated progress in order to fulfil their potential.
