Pupil Premium Grant

1 John 3:23 And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us.

The Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the  school’s budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding  to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. In 2014/15 the school received £11,800  in Pupil Premium allocations. In 2015/16 the allocation was £19,016.  Our allocation for the current academic year (2016/17) is £26,660.

In 2015/16 the pupil premium is to be used in the following ways:

  • Funding for an allocated Teaching Assistant to work with vulnerable children
  • Assisted places on school trips
  • Enabling pupils to participate in school residential holidays
  • Provision of music lessons
  • Provision of after school clubs
  • Help with uniform purchases
  • Other additional staffing (e.g. extra welfare staff at lunch breaks)

In 2014/15 the pupil premium was used as follows:

  • Funding for an allocated Teaching Assistant to work with vulnerable children
  • Assisted places on school trips
  • Provision of music lessons
  • Provision of after school clubs
  • Help with uniform purchases
  • Provision of free school milk to eligible children
  • Other additional staffing (e.g. extra welfare staff at lunch breaks)

Examples of impact include:

  •  Identified pupils made at least expected and in some cases better than expected progress
  • Improvements in attainment
  •  Pupil engagement in extra-curricular activities has increased
  •  Improved family-school relations
  • Pupils who would not normally be able to have received extra musical tuition

The school plans to continue with these strategies. The link below takes you to a document showing a more detailed proposal of how Pupil Premium money will be used during this Academic Year.
