Purpose of Pupil Premium
The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to publicly-funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. For the 2020 to 2021 financial year, schools have received the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:
- £1,345 for primary-aged pupils
Schools also received £2345 for each pupil who:
- has been looked after for 1 day or more
- has been adopted from care
- has left care under: a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangement order
Our Pupil Premium Strategy for 2020-2021.
The impact of all interventions, initiatives and strategies is evaluated in daily pupil progress meetings. Entry and exit data tracks the performance of individual pupils and groups (such as those identified as being more able), usually every 6 weeks, informing our ongoing Pupil Premium Strategy. Summative test data is also analysed in terms of groups of pupils who have attended booster classes, have been tutored or who have accessed the extended day provision or whose teachers have received specific training.
The impact of the school’s Pupil Premium strategy is monitored reviewed through daily pupil progress meetings and weekly Senior Leadership Meetings. The strategies are reviewed periodically with the School Improvement Adviser and the Governing Body. The review point was in July 2021, when the new achievement data for Reception, Year 2 and Year 6 became available. Outcomes for disadvantaged pupils are always compared to all pupils nationally.
For more information, please contact the School Office. The school has a designated member of staff and member of the Governing Body with responsibility for Pupil Premium.
