Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Information

It is a requirement that we provide information about the Pupil Premium allocation in our school and how we choose to use it.

Pupil Premium is an additional amount  of funding that schools receive from the government to support areas of deprivation and vulnerable children. The amount each school receives is calculated by a number of different factors including the number of children who have free school meals, the number of Looked After Children and the number of Service children.

Pupil Premium is granted to help overcome barriers to educational achievement faced by the eligible pupils.  In our school those barriers include: Social and Emotional needs, Communication needs, Sensory needs and Specific Learning needs.

We aim to address these needs through the provision detailed in our pupil premium statement for each academic year, follow the links below.  (Please note that Pupil Premium is allocated to schools in financial years so there may be some anomolies in the funding detailed, depending on the time of year.) We measure the impact of our provision termly through our monitoring procedures.  This is detailed at the end of the academic year in the impact column.  We refine our provision termly if required, based on an audit of needs and impact.

Attitudes to learning were significantly improved

 

The impact has been measured using SATs data and Ks1 data where appropriate. As we are a very small school year group data cannot be use as this would lead to the pupils being easily identified.Using the pupil premium in this way is intended to encourage the eligible pupils as well as the other pupils in the groups to believe in their own abilities and give them the confidence to have a go rather than be limited by their own fear of failure.
