Pupil premium is specific additional Government funding, provided to schools to support the education of pupils who are entitled to Free School meals both currently or in the last six years.
Governors and staff allocate how the funding is used and this is reviewed termly throughout the financial year.
Each term, The Senior leadership Team hold Pupil Progress meetings with teachers to review how each class is performing. This includes a detailed discussion about pupils who are eligible for Pupil Premium funding; the impact of targeted, additional support; progress versus attainment and next steps for development.
Breakdown of funding
To protect the anonymity of children and families we do not publish itemised details and costs, however, we have included a breakdown of some of the ways we support our pupils.
