Pupil Premium Funding
Pupil Premium is additional school funding for disadvantaged children. It is paid directly to the school to improve outcomes for children.
In the financial year 2019/2020 the school allocation was £5,200.
This funding was used to support pupils in English and maths. Teaching assistant support was used to give specific support in the classroom and also to deliver intervention programmes such as IDL and Clever Fingers. It was also used to provide emotional support to improve behaviour for learning.
The funding was also used to provide support from external agencies, such as Acorn Psychology and Reachout ASC.
The impact was difficult to evaluate due to school closure during the Covid 19 pandemic. However, disadvantaged pupils were prioritised during the extended period of home learning.
In the financial year 2020/2021 the school allocation is £7,595.
PPG funding is currently being used to provide specific support with maths and English and to continue to fund the IDL programme. The funding is also used to provide carefully targeted intervention in order to close gaps.
The funding will be used to provide TA support and to provide targeted interventions focused on both cognitive development and also emotional well being to improve behaviour for learning.
