The Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. In 2015/2016 the school had a provisional allocation of £5800.
In 2015/16 the Pupil Premium was used in a variety of ways. These included:
- Funding of additional TA support to deliver personalised intervention programmes.
- Provision of extra- curricular activities for children both in and out of school, including residentials.
- Purchase of school uniform
- Use of specific targeted services
Examples of impact in 2015/2016 include:
- Pupils make steady progress in-line with their peers.
- Increased pupil well-being, confidence and raised self- esteem.
- Pupils have access to all extra-curricular activities, including attendance at sport and after school clubs.
In 2016/17 the Pupil Premium provisional allocation was £4,540 and will continue to be used to support:
- TA support to deliver personalised intervention programmes
- School Meals
- Music Tuition
- Additional Reading resources
The impact of this money will be reviewed in summary in September 2017 and to inform provision on a termly basis through results analysis and staff discussions.
This year’s allocation will be used to offset barriers to learning such as:
- The lack of access to wider curriculum opportunities
- Pupil well-being and the readiness to learn
