The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are at risk of underachieving at school.
Pupil Premium groups include pupils who are entitled to free school meals; those looked after by the local authority; and the children of armed service personnel.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used.
We currently use the additional funding in the following ways:
- To provide short-term intervention programmes for underachieving pupils and those with SEN.
- To provide one-to-one tuition for some pupils.
- To fund school trips, extracurricular activities and books to promote reading and boost learning.
- Additional individual or small group tuition programmes for those children on Free School Meals who need a boost to their learning in order to reach their potential; for example small group reading, writing or maths tuition.
- To support children’s learning in the classroom by ensuring that class sizes are as low as possible.
- Ensuring that the children who qualify for free school meals have their needs clearly identified and their progress closely monitored through school.
- Supporting further intervention in learning when this would help a Free School Meals child reach their potential.
