Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate the funding to best support raising the attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. The Governors of the school fully support the principles behind this financial allocation.

During the academic year of 2020 – 2021, the school received £29,175 in Pupil Premium allocations. This funding has been used in a variety of ways including:

  • Increasing the level of teaching support in upper Key Stage 2 for a period of three terms to help provide further intervention aimed at smaller groups of pupils, including children benefiting from Pupil Premium allocations. The support will be tailored to the needs of the pupils and run both in and out of class time to help close the gaps in learning.
  • To ensure that disadvantaged pupils access the full curriculum, including enrichment opportunities such as topic trips and visitors to the school.
  • To ensure that disadvantaged pupils in Year 6 have the opportunity to attend our residential visit, money has been used to subsidise the cost of this week away, supporting those pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds.
  • Contributing towards the cost of music tuition led by experienced music specialists to ensure that all children receive equal opportunities regardless of their backgrounds.
  • Helping to facilitate smaller class sizes in Key Stage 1 to have more targeted adult time following school closure for our younger pupils as school closure has impacted most heavily on the youngest children.

As a result of the provision we provide, supported by our Pupil Premium allocations, we have seen the following impact:

  • End of Key Stage data will show that disadvantaged pupils will achieve in line with their peers.
  • Year 1 phonics results will show that disadvantaged pupils will achieve in line with their peers.
  • Internal school assessment data will show that disadvantaged pupils make as much progress as their peers.
  • All pupils have access to a broad and balanced curriculum that incorporates regular enrichment opportunities, regardless of their backgrounds.
  • All pupils have access to excellent music teaching, led by an experienced specialist, and will be able to achieve in music in line with their peers.
  • All pupils have equal opportunities to attend the Year 6 residential.
