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.

  • 1:1 teaching and booster classes and/or small group support for specific children
  • Intervention strategies to narrow gaps in learning
  • raising the confidence and esteem of identified pupils
  • increasing opportunities for vulnerable pupils through curriculum enrichment
  • counselling services to develop confidence and relationship building techniques
  • developing pupils social skills and engagement with other children and adults
  • providing opportunities to learn a musical instrument through individual and group lessons in school
  • providing opportunities to attend residential and day visits and trips
  • support for transfer to Key Stage 3

We will measure the impact of these initiatives through:

  • providing a wider range of extra curricular activities and monitoring the uptake of these so that more pupils are engaged in these
  • enriching the curriculum through visits and visitors and maintaining dialogue with pupils to ensure that they have a wide range of experiences to draw upon in their learning.
