Pupil Premium - how we spend it

The pupil premium 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.

Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:

  • registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • been in care for 6 months or longer
The main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at our school are:

1) Parents being able to help children with their learning confidently
2) Children not being emotionally ready to access the curriculum
3) Children not having a wide range of experiences from which to draw on
4) Children not having the resources to help them with their learning outside of school
5) Poor attendance

Our belief is that if all our children receive Quality First Teaching (QFT) from the teacher and the issues above are fully addressed, then they will make the progress.
