The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Pupil Premium Strategy 2020-2021

Pupil Premium is an element of additional revenue, allocated to schools specifically to pay for additional help for disadvantaged groups of children.

Much of the spending is concentrated on supporting children with their well-being, ensuring good emotional and mental health.

In addition:

  • Providing extra one-to-one or small-group support
  • Employing extra teaching assistants
  • Running catch-up sessions (for example, for children who need extra help with maths or literacy)
  • Providing extra tuition where needed
  • Providing therapeutic support to ensure pupil’ social, emotional and mental health needs are met
  • Providing a homework club run by an experienced TA or Home School Link Worker
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through trained TAs or external agencies
  • Additional help to families to pay for residential visits
  • Additional teaching and learning resources that support accelerated progress
  • Providing support for families through a Home School Link Worker

All our work through the pupil premium is aimed at accelerating progress and moving children to at least age related expectations.  Initially this will be in Communication, English and Maths.

Pupil premium resources may also be used to target able children on Free School Meals to achieve a level above that which is expected for their age.
