Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium funding and allocation

Pupil premium funding is allocated based on numbers of children who claim free school meals at a specified point within the year. The funding is then allocated in line with the school budget which runs for the financial year (April – March), however it is important to highlight the amount of spend available for the academic year (September – August).

Funding allocation for the current year 16/17 

Financial year £139,920

Academic year £139,370

This Year our priorities are

  • To further develop language and communication skills
  • To close the attainment gap in Reading
  • To improve children’s reasoning and problem solving skills
  • To increase levels of challenge to meet the demands of the National Curriculum
  • To continue to improve confidence, independence and resilience- Growth Mind Set
  • To continue to improve the wider opportunities available for all our pupils
  • For ALL pupils to achieve the highest possible standards and realise their full potential in all aspects of their learning
  • Narrow the gap for Key groups -SEN

We will continue to strengthen parental engagement in learning, through increasing the support on offer for parents (skills sessions, training in the curriculum and targeted parents’ meetings). We will also continue to improve attendance and PA by working closely with parents and APSO.

Our training for staff this year will include a focus on reading- including guided reading, problem solving and reasoning in maths and Developing a Growth Mind Set culture.
