Pupil Premium Policy


Pupil Premium Allocation

In the academic year 2017 – 2018, the school has been allocated £54,025 in Pupil Premium funding to date.  We intend to use this to maintain an increased number of teaching staff in EYFS in order to promote accelerated progress, particularly in the area of speech and language development.  We have also allocated money to maintain additional support staff in order to provide a broad range of interventions and to improve the quality of support for teaching and learning.  Furthermore, we have retained the post of Learning Mentor to further promote positive attitudes to learning and offer pastoral support, and encourage good attendance.  Money has also been allocated to continue supporting the existing breakfast club and attendance initiatives to maintain and further enhance good attendance and punctuality.  We also continued to develop and enhance our curriculum by extending the range of first hand experiences and opportunities available to our pupils, and provide access to a wider range of learning opportunities.
