Pupil Premium

The principle of the funding...

The staff and governors use the Pupil Premium Allocation to:

* Ensure teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils

* Ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups

Pupil Premium Funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority groups or individuals.

The governors recognise that:

* In making the above provisions not all pupils who receive free school meals which is the basis of the grant formula will be socially disadvantaged

* Not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals

We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium Funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils that the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.


The Provision

We aim to ensure that the money is used in ways which allow pupils to develop the skills and strategies to enable them to fulfil their potential. Some examples of this use of funding include after school care places and sport coaching sessions to develop team work, social and communication skills. Specialist training has been purchased to ensure that staff have the necessary skills for supporting individual pupils and meeting their needs as fully as possible. Resources have been purchased that can help individual pupils in developing in important skills such as team work, turn- taking, language development, empathising with others, self-confidence, self- belief and self-esteem. Places have been funded on educational and residential visits. 


Impact of Attainment

The number of pupils who are covered by Pupil Premium Funding is small and these pupils are spread across different year groups.
