What is it?
The pupil premium is funding allocated to schools to boost the attainment of pupils from low income families. This also allocated to service children and those who have been looked after by the local authority. Nationally, each year the funding has increased per pupilGlossary:
Disadvantaged pupils- pupils receiving free school meals
FSM 6- pupils who have received free school meals in the last 6 years.

School Pupil Premium allocation amount: £56,000 (this will change due to allocations during the year)
Summary of Main Barriers to educational achievement: Pupils have lower levels of Literacy skills and confidence in applying skills in writing. They are reluctant to discuss their learning and seek feedback.
How will the Premium be spent: Pupils have been directly tutored by a member of our school staff, Mrs Jefferson. She works individually or in pairs with pupils. This allows her to discuss learning points where pupils feel they can ask about aspects of learning they don't understand. Pupils have feedback books which they keep in lessons to record areas of work they require more support with. The school has a pupil premium first strategy where there books are marked first and they receive feedback first.
Research has shown that small group tutoring, feedback and a focus on Literacy skills really benefit children in terms of accelerating progress.
How will we measure the effect of the pupil premium strategy: The school will submit data to the local authority to measure the outcomes of pupil premium children with other schools that have taken part. If schools remain open then national testing can be used at the end of July 2022. Samples of pupils work has been retained over time so progress can be measured and pupils books remain a key source of evidence.
The school has set an objective to narrow the gap between pupils with an additional language in Reading, Writing and Maths compared to other pupils at the expected standard.
