Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Overview of the school

Number of pupils and pupil premium grant (PPG) received in financial year April 2020 to April 2021

Total number of pupils on roll - 64

Total number of pupils eligible for PPG: 10

Total amount of PPG received 2020-21

Main barriers to achievement faced by eligible pupils

The main barriers to achievement faced by eligible pupils are a lack of aspiration, linked to social & emotional issues together with poor language skills.

Some children with PP lack life experiences and have low expectations of themselves as learners

Home learning environments can limit some children’s learning: good communication and support from school is needed.
