Pupil Premium Statement.

In 2011/12, the Government launched the Pupil Premium Funding initiative. This money is allocated to schools based on the number of pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM - allocated to pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’) Looked After Children (LAC) and Armed Forces Services Children (FC) The government believes that the pupil premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Schools have the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium in a way they believe will best support the raising of attainment and help overcome barriers to learning for the most vulnerable pupils. The pupil premium is now a significant part of many schools’ budgets, it is now an expected that Headteacher/ SENCO show the impact that the additional funding is having on eligible pupils.

Our strategy for supporting disadvantaged pupils is to use the best and most experienced teachers to support our most vulnerable learners. For this reason, where possible, additional support is provided by teachers. Each child in receipt of the pupil premium grant has an individual plan to ensure that support is targeted and meets their individual needs.

The main barriers for pupils in receipt of PPG are specific to the child. For some children, barriers may be linked to previous trauma, neglect or attachment issues. This can have significant impact on self-esteem and confidence and so nurture times and interventions are aimed at raising the child's self-image and confidence. This has a direct impact on learning. Our use of an experienced teacher to lead interventions means that barriers are identified on an individual basis and addressed through high quality one to one or small group sessions. Some pupil premium children also have Special Educational Needs.
