The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
On this page you will find the details of our school’s pupil premium grant allocation amount for this academic year and a summary of the main barriers to educational achievement currently faced by eligible pupils at the school. You will also find details of how we’ll spend the pupil premium to address those barriers and the reasons for that approach, as well as details of how we’ll measure the impact of the pupil premium and the date of the next review of the school’s pupil premium strategy.
For the previous year, you will also find details of how we spent the pupil premium allocation and the impact of the expenditure on eligible and other pupils.
In 2016-17, we are using the pupil premium in a similar way to 2015-16 to continue the good results. We fully intend to continue our successful 'Tuesday Club' after school to target and support specific pupils and to continue our 1:1 and booster group interventions. We we will also be having staff training in 'Team teach' behaviour strategies.
