Pupil Premium Objectives 2018-19

DfE Guidance on Pupil Premium Funding

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. Schools can make decisions about how to spend the Pupil Premium funding to ensure that there is a narrowing of the attainment gap. The Pupil Premium provides funding for pupils:

  • pupils who qualify for free school meals, or have done at any time in the past six years (£935 per child)
  • pupils who have a parent serving in the armed forces (£300 per child)
  • pupils who are in the care of, or provided with accommodation by an English local authority (LA) (looked after children LAC) (£1,900 per child)
  • pupils who were looked after by an English or Welsh local authority before being adopted, or who left care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (Post LAC) (£1900 per child)

Schools are held accountable for the spending of these monies, and performance tables will capture the achievement of disadvantaged students covered by the Pupil Premium.

 

Academic Year : 2018-19 Total Pupil Premium Budget: £33,045
Total Number of students: 1352 Number of students eligible for Pupil Premium: 22
Percentage of cohort: 1.6%  

 

Barriers to Learning

1 Emotional wellbeing Some students in this cohort (and other, non-PP students) have a lack of emotional resilience and anxiety/lack of emotional wellbeing which can be a barrier to learning and progress. Students in this cohort may have low self-esteem and a lack of self-confidence.
2 Attendance Some students in the PP cohort have lower attendance than is expected.
3 Access to additional resources/opportunities Some students do not have access to extra-curricular activities which will enhance their learning as well as involvement in extension/enrichment opportunities to broaden students’ educational experiences.
