What Is The Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from Reception to Year 11.
The Pupil Premium Grant provides funding for two policies:
Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers; and
Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.
In 2020-21 we received £32,500 (Indicative Report – School Budget Share) in Pupil Premium funding which was used to:
Support online /home learning during Lockdown (not planned for initially)
to address learning gaps as a result of lockdowns
Provide additional wellbeing support
To provide enrichment opportunities
To provide targeted support ,additional boosters and focus work
Pupil Premium Action Plan
Pupil Premium spending for 2022-23 was decided upon after consultation with a wide variety of stakeholders with regards to the main barriers to educational achievement and data analysis by the Senior Leadership Team. We also completed a Pupil Premium audit .
This work identified the main barriers identified were as follows:
Learning in Key stage 1 continued focus due to the early childhood effects of remote learning/covid
EYFS - Speech and communication needs increasing
Social, emotional and behavioural difficulties
o Mental/ emotional health difficulties
Financial difficulties increasing - opportunities for wider activities
o Poor emotional resilience and self-regulation skills impact on many pupils’ ability to work collaboratively and to accept a degree of challenge in their learning
o Children lack the aspiration necessary to achieve in all aspects of life
The impact of our Pupil Premium spending is reviewed on a half-termly basis through Pupil Progress meetings and duly reported as appropriate.
