Pupil Premium Grant

Parents may be aware that the current Government wishes to narrow the educational attainment gap that we have nationally between children who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or who speak English as an Additional Language (EAL). To narrow this attainment and progress gap the government have given schools additional funding, known as the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)

The PPG is allocated to children who are currently known to be eligible for FSM or have been at any time in the last 6 years in mainstream schools, and children who have been in care for 1 day or more.  There is also an allocation for the pupils who have parents in the armed forces.

Our Vision for Pupil Premium

Our Vision for Pupil Premium

As a school we believe there are three key spheres which can influence a pupil's outcome in school.

When decided where and how pupil premium funding should be targeted we talk about how the barriers in the home, in the pupil and the school are to be overcome. We outline these barriers and how the school intends to tackle them in our Pupil Premium strategy which is initially set for the year and then reviewed by the school leaders and governors on a termly basis.

Development of Quality First Teaching - What have we done so far?

Following the recommendations of the Education Endowment Fund's Teaching and Learning Toolkit (details to the website can be found below), we understand that effective feedback and the development of children's independent learning skills are effective ways to accelerate children's progress. At the same time, we also understand these skills to be the cornerstones of high quality teaching and therefore we have used the Pupil Premium funding to invest in the development of both Teachers and Teaching Assistants so that they have the knowledge and resources to enable them to be as effective as they can be.
