Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families.  We plan the use of dedicated funding and write an individual support plan for each eligible child.  The large majority of the funding is spent on dedicated 1:1 qualified teacher time, catch-up lessons, additional qualified staff at KS2, and occasionally social and emotional support including counselling, curriculum enrichment such as instrumental lessons, dedicated revision materials and accompanying technology for specific pupils, and educational visits.  In the EYFS and KS1, the funding is used to provide 1:1 interventions which ensure that each pupil in this group attains the level required in the phonics screener in Y1 first time round.  Over time, we have increased the achievement of disadvantaged pupils and reduced a previous gap in attainment between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils within the school.
