Our Pupil Premium Report is always reviewed and updated annually in July each year.
Summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at school.
1. Attendance and Punctuality – A greater proportion of pupil premium children require additional support to main good attendance above 96% and to also ensure they come to school on time.
2. Passive attitude towards learning – A greater proportion of our pupil premium children require an enhanced curriculum to ensure their learning is not passive.
3. Speech and Language upon entry to school – A greater proportion of our pupil premium children require speech and language support when they enter school.
4. Parental Involvement – A greater awareness of the expectations of each Key Stage and Year group and to encourage a partnership in learning, which is sometimes more difficult with our pupil premium children.
5. Remote Learning/Lockdown - A greater proportion of our pupil premium children did not engage in school work during lockdown or periods of remote learning.
Pupil Premium funding was introduced by the government in 2012 to help schools address issues in attainment linked to deprivation. Pupil premium is calculated using eligibility for Free School Meals as a guide to the potential extent of deprivation within each school’s catchment area. Schools are required to use the funding to help put in place measures designed to raise attainment. We encourage parents to apply for Free School Meals at this school. All children are equal and those who receive Free School Meals are not identified or viewed as different to their peers. Pupil Premium is allocated to this school specifically to support children on FSM or who belong to Service families. Pupils eligible for Pupil Premium will be given additional support to help overcome any barriers to learning.
