Ofsted & Specific Govt. Funding Reports
Pupil Premium Report
The Government are currently providing an extra grant to schools to support particular groups of children who have been identified Nationally as underachieving. This grant is called the Pupil Premium. The Government require schools to report publicly on the amount of money they are receiving for this grant and what they are doing with it to improve standards. Outlined below is the Pupil Premium income, expenditure and impact for our school for the last academic year and the current one in the form of a Pupil Premium Strategy:
Our general Pupil Premium ethos is to provide extra staff (which includes extra teachers) in our school in order to facilitate more individualised learning experiences to meet need and to provide an holistic approach to pastoral care, supporting the wider families as well as the children, in order to address the barriers to achieving learning and life success.
The target children for pupil premium achieve well and in some cases above National Averages and generally make good or better progress across the school. However, the pupil premium enables all children in the school to benefit from the extra resources and achieve better outcomes. Our “other pupils” group has a large number of English as an Additional Language pupils which influences attainment outcomes but these children also make good or better progress. For specific outcomes refer to the strategy link above.
