What is Pupil Premium?

 

Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government to provide additional funding to address the gap in educational attainment and economic wellbeing between pupils from low-income families or pupils in care compared to their peers.  Funding is received for children who have registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, children who have been in care for more than six months and children whose parents currently serve in the armed forces. 

 

Barriers to educational attainment

 

Barrier Outcomes Success Criteria
A Poor speech and language skills.

100% improvement as evidenced by baseline

assessment.  Proportion of pupils achieving early

learning goals in the prime areas will increase.

Pupils effectively use speech and language

skills within the curriculum.

Pupils in other year groups will make the

expected rate of progress.

B Low baseline on entry to EYFS.

Percentage of pupils who achieve GLD is in

line with national.

C

Safeguarding and emotional barriers

to learning.

Emotional support for vulnerable children will

result in higher pupil outcomes and a reduction

in behavioural incidents.

D

Disadvantage and poverty of

expectation.

More pupils will achieve age-related and greater

depth expectations in all areas.

E

Limited life experiences as a result of

social and economic factors.

Pupils will use experiences to develop their

academic and social skills and as a result will

achieve more highly.

Pupils will make good or better progress from their

starting points.

F Poor attendance and punctuality.

Attendance and punctuality will improve and pupils

will engage fully in all lessons.

Attendance of pupils will be in line with national

and the percentage of persistent absence will reduce.
