The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England.
It’s designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers.
As a school we spend that money in ways which can be as individual as the need of each child. We also fund whole school initiatives to improve wellbeing, attainment and progress.
Mrs Tanner is our Inclusion Lead; she oversees the attainment and progress for pupils identified in this group, she also monitors the spending of these additional funds and then measures the impact of purchases or actions.
Mrs Murphy is the Inclusion Governor. She meets with Mrs Tanner to evaluate the effectiveness of the school’s Pupil Premium strategy which is reviewed annually at a meeting of the Full Governing Body.
All pupils identified in this group receive a 50% grant towards music tuition, school trips and residentials, and one additional extra-curricular activity so that these pupils do not identify as being disadvantaged compared to their peers. All pupils in this group also receive a uniform allowance.
Please see below for a detailed breakdown of Pupil Premium spending and impact for last year.
