The Government currently provides additional funding to all schools for children in certain key groups. This funding is known as the Pupil Premium Grant and is intended to allow each school to make additional provision for children who are in receipt of free school meals, those who are looked after by the local authority and those whose parents are members of the armed forces and may, as a consequence of their parents’ placements, be subject to a number of school moves.
Schools use this funding to enhance the achievement of pupils in these groups and ensure the inclusion of these pupils in all enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities.
Pupil Premium Strategy 2021 - 2024
For the financial year 2021-2022, we will receive £63,375 in receipt of Pupil Premium funding.
Pupil Premium Strategy 2020/21
For the financial year 2020-2021, we will receive £48,840 in receipt of Pupil Premium funding.
Our strategy for the 2020-21 academic year has been developed in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and school closure. Our Pupil Premium Strategy will work alongside our ‘Catch Up’ plans to support all pupils, especially the most vulnerable and disadvantaged, to mitigate the impact of the lost time in education due to closure of schools.
As a school, we have identified the following as some of the barriers to learning or future attainment for the pupils currently in receipt of Pupil Premium funding.
- Social and emotional wellbeing, particularly in relation to the return to School after the closure;
- Attainment gaps in English and Maths;
- Access to a wide range of enriching curriculum opportunities.
Please see the table below for how we plan to use this funding. The impact of these strategies will be closely monitored by the school’s Senior Leadership Team.
