Pupil Premium

In 2016 – 2017 financial year, the school received £86,560 pupil premium allocation. The overarching objectives for the use of pupil premium spending in 2016 – 2017 are to:

·    To ensure class teachers understand and carry out their responsibilities to Pupil Premium Children

·    To ensure that the Pupil Premium Champion is fully aware of the provision and progress made by Pupil Premium Children

·    To provide short term additional focussed teaching to fill gaps in learning

·    To ensure that the link between home and school is strong and a learning partnership between home and school is sustained

What will success look like?

·    An increase of the percentage of disadvantaged children on track to achieve age related expectations in reading, writing and maths.

·    Diminish any in-school differences in attainment between disadvantaged children and non-disadvantaged children.

·    All disadvantaged children make at least expected progress and that a greater proportion make better than expected than progress in reading, writing and maths.
