Our Pupil Premium allocation for 2017-2018 is £23,670.

The main barriers to learning for some of our pupils in receipt of this funding (and others) in 2017 / 2018 are:

  • Attendance & punctuality.
  • Support at home.

These issues will be / have been addressed by:

  • Increasing communication with parents / carers in regard to attendance and punctuation and ensuring all pupils want to come to school to learn
  • Pupil premium pupils are given  CGP homework books in where appropriate.

Other uses of the funding include:

  • Continuing to fund a sign language teacher (approximately £5 k per annum.)
  • To fund residential visits and school trips to those pupils in receipt of Free School Meals. (approx. £1 k per annum.)
  • Provide a reading intervention programme for some pupils in Upper KS2
  • Funding reading programmes for use in school such as Bug Club and Education City.
