Introduced in 2011, Pupil Premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.
Primarily the aim of this additional funding is to support your child/ren academically with their learning in school. This may be in the form of small group or 1:1 interventions or prioritised support in the classroom. Some children may also receive additional, tailored support for their emotional and social learning.
Some funding is also used to support attendance at school. It is known that just a 10% reduction in attendance can result in a drop of one GCSE grade, so it is really important that good habits are formed at primary school, that will enable your child/ren to go on to succeed to the best of their ability in the future.
In addition to academic and emotional support, some funding is also available to enhance curriculum provision to enable all children to have access to similar experiences.
All children in receipt of the Pupil Premium will be offered:
- £35.00 uniform voucher for the start of each academic year.
- Free milk for children in key stage 1.
- 25% subsidy on the cost of school trips.
