Government Pupil Premium Funding is for eligible pupils to ensure that all children have equal opportunities to succeed. Schools are given £1,345 for each eligible disadvantaged pupil. Following the UK Lockdowns in response to COVID 19, schools have also been granted 'Catch Up Funding' at £80 per pupil. Details of how the Pupil Premium and Catch Up funding will be spent to benefit all pupils is outlined in detail in the PDF link at the bottom of this webpage.

What is the impact? Please note the UK Lockdown prevented data in 2020 and 2021.
During the lockdowns, the gap between the achievement of our Pupil Premium children and other children widened. Staff worked very hard to reduce this and between the end of lockdown (March 2021) and the end of the acadmic year (July 2021), the gap had narrowed. This was through additional support as well as our catch up programme, incuding;
- small group support for the least able every day
- increased adult to child ratio for our youngest children
- increased specialist 1to1 support for those with speech and language needs
- increased social skill and nurture support for those with well-being needs
- increased enhancement; clubs, trips, visits, visitors with subsidy for disadvantaged pupils
