The Government has given money to schools to help children from lower income families do their very best. This funding is called ‘Pupil Premium’. This year our school budget was credited with £1,320 for pupils in reception year to year 6 and £300 for pupils of parents in the armed forces per eligible child registered (Total £99,520).
We use this money to provide additional support to pupils and a range of enhancement activities to maximise their chances of making the expected progress in their learning:
- Working with additional teaching assistants in class
- Participation in short term intervention programmes identified and organised for underachieving pupils and those with SEN, eg spelling or reading programmes, social skills/friendship groups, one to one tuition
- Participation in extra curricular activities that give children wider social and educational opportunities
