About the Pupil Premium

 Pupil premium is additional funding provided to school for supporting more disadvantaged pupils to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children and narrow gaps in attainment.  National data shows that generally, these children do not achieve as highly as their peers. There are three categories of children who qualify for pupil premium:

 ·         Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been in the last 6 years

 ·         Looked after children (including children who were adopted from care)

 ·         Armed forces children

 For pupils eligible for PP, including high ability

 In-school barriers (issues to be addressed in school, such as poor oral language skills)

A.  The reading, writing and maths skills of some of those in receipt of Pupil Premium is below that of others due to their lower starting   points .curriculum.

B.  A number of children in receipt of Pupil Premium have social and emotional difficulties which is a barrier to learning and limits attainment.

C.  Concentration skills are a barrier to learning

External barriers (issues which also require action outside school, such as low attendance rates)

The home learning environment is a barrier for some children in both KS1 and KS2 and limits learning and limits attainment. Particularly with

the current pandemic, there is concern that some children may have been disadvantaged with home learning. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic should not be underestimated.

A.  Higher rates of progress across KS2 for  pupils eligible for PP

 Pupils eligible for PP make as much progress as non- eligible children, across Key Stage 2 in maths, reading and writing. Measured by teacher assessments and  successful moderation practices established across the family of schools and by  KS2 assessment outcomes.

B.  Children’s social and emotional needs met

Children  able to express their concerns and for emotional resilience  increased ensuring that they are ready to learn and thereby making greater progress.

C.  Improved concentration skills for pupils eligible for PP in school.

Pupils concentration will be such that those eligible for PP in school will make rapid progress by the end of the year so that an increased number of pupils eligible for PP meet age related expectations
