What is Pupil Premium Funding?
"The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It was allocated to children from low-income families who were known to be eligible for free school meals in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, and children who had been looked after continuously for more than six months. It was paid to local authorities by means of a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for free school meals in reception to Year 11. For looked after children the Pupil Premium was calculated using the Children Looked After data returns."

Pupil Premium Strategy 2016-17
Number of Children currently eligible for PPG - 16 Pupil Premium Funding = £22,440
Identified priorities for children eligible for PPG:
Maintain a good level of progress across the school.
To develop a love of reading throughout the school.
Improve attendance and punctuality.
To provide emotional support for children with social, emotional and mental health issues.
Main barriers to learning:
Pupil experiencing social and emotional issues inside and outside of school.
Pupils who have a low attendance percentage.
High quality learning opportunities outside of school.
As a school, we review the provision in place for our Pupil Premium children half termly at the Full Governor Body Meetings. The Head teacher will report to the Governing Body the actions taken that term and the reasons for them. The performance of these children is then presented to the Curriculum Committee on a termly basis.
The Pupil Premium Strategy will be reviewed in May 2017.
