The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.

Pupil Premium Strategy Statement

Pupil Premium 2015/2016

We invested in:

  • Additional TA support to deliver personalised intervention programmes
  • Provision of extra-curricular activities for children in school
  • Provision of nurture group
  • Additional resources/equipment to meet pupil needs
  • Enabling pupils to participate in school residential holidays and educational trips

The impact of this has been:

  • More intervention work was able to take place
  • Increased 1:1 support was available
  • Identified children continued to make at least expected progress with some exceeding their school targets

The school plans to continue with these strategies during 2016/17.
