Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools to support pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point within the last six years. It is to be used to raise the attainment and outcomes of the pupils, as well as providing enrichment opportunities for which the funding is intended. The Academy is committed to creative and innovative solutions on how such funding can improve provision, achievement and attainment for this group of pupils and also improve outcomes for all its pupils. This includes using the funding to impact on staffing, resources and the provision of a range of enrichment opportunities.
For 2019-20, we have received £99,000 and plan to spend the funds in the following ways:
Some examples include:
- Focused intervention groups
- Speech & Language Therapist
- Breakfast Club
- After School Clubs
- Enhancement of the wider curriculum
- Attendance incentives
- Opportunity for extra-curricular visits
- Learning mentor intervention groups
- Behaviour reward systems
- Reading & Phonics intervention resources
- Access to visits
Pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium Funding in 2019-20 are tracked and monitored carefully for both progress and attainment, this forms part of the regular pupil progress meetings held by leaders.
