Support for pupil premium and vulnerable pupils
Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. Often, children who are entitled to pupil premium face challenges such as poor language and communication skills, lack of confidence and issues with attendance and punctuality. The pupil premium is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their classmates.
We receive pupil premium for:
- Children in Reception to Year 6 who are, or have ever been, entitled to free school meals based on their family income: £1320 per pupil, per school year
- Children in care: £2300 per pupil, per school year
- Children previously in care who have been adopted, or who have a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order: £2300 per pupil, per school year
- Children recorded as being from service families: £300 per pupil, per school year
Pupil premium will be used as follows:
- To provide extra support staff.
- To provide intervention programmes for underachieving pupils and those with SEN.
- To provide one-to-one tuition for some pupils.
- To subsidise residential and other education trips and visits. No child is excluded from a visit because of financial constraints on the family.
- To provide a range of resources to facilitate learning for specific pupils.
- To ensure all pupils have access to a wide and varied range of extra curricular activities.
- To provide support for emotional needs for families & individual children.
