Pupil Premium & Recovery Premium

Pupil Premium is a payment from the Government which is in addition to the school budget. 
The money is allocated to school to support children who are from low-income families who: 
• are known to be eligible for Free School Meals;
• have been looked after (in the care of the Local Authority) continuously for more than six months
• have parents who are currently employed by the Armed Forces.
From the start of the 2022-2023 academic year, a school's pupil premium statement must reflect the requirements in the pupil premium conditions of grant, including the requirement for pupil premium and recovery premium to be spent in line with the Department for Education's 'menu of approaches.'
From September 2012 all schools are required to publish on the school website how their Pupil Premium funding has been spent and what impact this has had on pupil progress and achievement.

This year, our pupil premium is £145,350.  This money will be used to provide:
  • further development of pedagogical practices to ensure all lessons meet the needs of all learners
  • 1:1 and small group intervention for:
    • maths, specifically times tables
    • reading comprehension

  • participation in the National Tutoring Programme for maths and reading support
  • speech, language and vocabulary support and development
  • improved attendance
  • wellbeing and mental health support
  • increased engagement with parents and increased opportunities for parents to engage with the school
