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 achievement:

Barrier

Outcomes

Success Criteria

A

 

 

Poor speech and language skills.

Proportion of children achieving GLD in the prime areas in the EYFS will increase and pupils in higher year groups will make the expected rate of progress.

B

Lower than national achievement at the end of Reception in the prime areas.

 Pupils will achieve national expectation in the prime areas.

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.

Poor attendance and punctuality.

Attendance and punctuality will improve and pupils will engage fully in all lessons.
