Strategic Plan

The Pupil Premium is additional money given to the school by government to improve the outcomes for children who receive free school meals, or have received free school meals in the previous six years (note, this only includes children between three and seven if the family income is below £16300 per annum. It also includes children who are in foster care (known as Children Looked After by the Local Authority). Generally, this will be spent on additional support to achieve expected or better than expected outcomes in communication, literacy or numeracy. However, it is the policy of the school to consider individualised approaches. For example, for older students it may be more appropriate to use the funding to support developing better life skills, for a child with a physical disability, we may use the money to provide 1:1 support for a weekly foot massage session. For some, we may pay for extra staffing so they can attend an after school club to develop their self-esteem, or fund a residential trip which fosters their independence.

 

All pupil premium provision is fully costed and evaluated. Where individualised approaches are used rather than developing communication, literacy or numeracy skill, parents are consulted.
