Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
The school provides well for the large proportion of disadvantaged pupils through its allocation of pupil premium funding. For example, leaders have employed a play worker to develop disadvantaged pupils’ speech and language skills. These pupils also attend a broad range of activities and additional learning groups that are funded through the pupil premium.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based upon the number of children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals or have been eligible over the last six years. It is also includes the number of children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. The funding is provided for the specific purpose of increasing the attainment and progress of these groups of pupils. An additional premium is provided based upon the number of pupils who have a parent working for the armed services. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.
Barriers to learning:
Barriers to learning for pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium are: attendance and punctuality, speech and language acquisition, low literacy and numeracy levels, being equipped to learn and ready for school. In recent years many of the pupils have started school with attainment below that expected of pupils of their actual age. Pupils with Special Educational Needs are supported with individual education plans.
