Pupil Premium Grant

Our Vision

The Pupil Premium Grant is government money designed to help disadvantaged children and young people do well at school. The funding is allocated to schools for children from Reception to Year 11 who have registered for free school meals in the last six years, are in care of the local authority (Looked After) or have parents in the Armed Forces. We aim to ensure we spend our additional Pupil Premium Grant on things that work and are effective in making a positive difference to our disadvantaged children, helping to combat their many barriers to learning and close any gaps in achievement so they do just as well as the other children.

Identifying and Addressing Barriers

We identify and address barriers to learning faced by individual pupils through:

  • Admission meetings with members of the senior leadership team to identify needs and possible barriers;
  • Everyday teaching practice, trawling records etc.
  • Discussions with pupils;
  • Parents and agencies involved;
  • Rigorous regular tracking of pupil attainment and progress, especially in our dedicated, solution-focused “narrowing the gap” progress meetings in which all disadvantaged children (including higher ability PP children) are discussed in detail with senior leaders, including our Inclusion Manager, the effectiveness of strategies to overcome their barriers to learning evaluated and reviewed, and a new tailored programme put in place.

Impact Measures

The School will measure the impact of interventions by:

  • Tracking the progress of students on a half termly basis;
  • Measuring the success of students at the end of each key stage, particularly key stage 2, against national measures;
  • Monitoring the support of students accessing additional need and pastoral support and reviewing provision half-termly;
  • Feedback from the additional outside agencies we buy in such as our professional Educational Psychologist (counselling), and from staff about the positive difference these services are making;
  • Directly comparing the quality of work and progress in their books to that of the other children in the class;
  • Analysis of other relevant key indicators such as attendance, punctuality, behaviour;
  • Discussions with pupils;
  • Parents and agencies involved.


Barriers to Success

The main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school are:

  • Pupil Premium pupils often have a very low starting point on entry to school;
  • Low language levels – 60% of our pupils have language and communication delay or difficulties when they arrive in Reception. This requires intense speech and language therapy and often leads to issues with R/W;
  • Safeguarding and welfare issues, sometimes with social services involvement;
  • Socio-economic disadvantages e.g. poverty and deprivation;
  • Trauma and other mental health issues in the family &/ or child including loss & bereavement of loved ones;
  • Family issues such as domestic violence, single parenthood, worklessness etc.
  • Housing issues – overcrowding, housing conditions etc.
  • Poor health and diet e.g. high level of medical needs (dental, sight, poor health conditions etc.);
  • Special educational needs and disabilities;
  • Lack of life experience and lack of support/ ability to support at home. Many do not have positive role models and, as a result, aspirations are low.
