Pupil Premium Funding
The Pupil Premium is additional funding on top of the main funding which a school receives. It is targeted at pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds.
In April 2021, we received Pupil Premium of £1345 for each child on roll who was at that time or was previously registered for Free School Meals in the past six years. We received £2690 in total of Pupil Premium for FSM children.
We also received an additional £310 for a child who has a parent work for the armed forces.
In April 2022, we received Pupil Premium Funding of £1385 for each child on roll who is currently or was previously registered for Free School Meals in the past six years. We received £2770 in total of Pupil Premium for FSM children.
The funding has been used to provide both one-to-one and small group support by teaching assistants, for pupils who are funded.
This support has had a positive impact on the attainment of these pupils, enabling them to make increased progress in the core subjects of literacy and numeracy. Pupils who are pupil premium funded make as much progress across the curriculum as other pupils.
It has also had a positive impact on pupil behaviour, attitude and confidence, which again impacts positively on learning.
We measure the attainment of Pupil Premium funded children as a group, separately to other groups in school.
It has also has a positive impact on pupil behaviour, attitude and confidence, which again impacts positively on learning.
Some of this funding for one pupil has also been used/is being used to pay for them to access an out of school sports club, which they otherwise could not have participated in. This has had a positive impact on their self-esteem, social skills and health.
