Pupil Premium Grant

Pupil Premium Grant Statement 2021

As part of our determination to ensure that all children get the best start in education that they deserve, we ensure that our Pupil Premium funding which comes directly from central Government, is used wisely to benefit those children who require additional support.
We are targeting this money to support our work on reading, writing and mathematics as these areas require further improvement across the school. We also value the Family Support provided within school which support attendance, behaviour and parenting skills.

Full details of our spending are shared and agreed with governors on an annual basis and they, along with Senior Leaders, then monitor the effectiveness of this spending and the benefits to the pupils (both PPG and non-PPG) This is monitored termly through data, and half-termly through observations, planning scrutiny and work scrutiny and teacher/teaching assistants will be held to account for progress and attainment being made. Further spending may be highlighted in CAF/TAF/CIN/CP meetings throughout the year and the school reserves some funding for these purposes as needed.

The Pupil Premium Grant spending and effectiveness is reviewed annually ahead of annual budget allocations.
