Pupil Premium funding was launched in 2011-12.
The funding is based on the number of children in school who have been eligible for free school meals in the past six years, are in care or adopted from care or have a parent in one of the services.
If your child does not currently have free school meals but may be eligible because of your family's income level, please contact the school office (in confidence) to register them.
Even if you do not wish your child to have the meal, school can still claim the Pupil Premium.
Please note that from September 2014 all children in YR, Y1 and Y2 will be entitled to a free school meal, - this does not mean they will be entitled to Pupil Premium funding.
If you have not previously registered your child to claim free school meal entitlement you still need to do this for school to claim Pupil Premium
If you would like more information please contact the headteacher, the Chair of our governing body, Mrs Lynn Sutcliffe or our designated Pupil Premium Champion Mrs Marion Nickson.
In 2020 - 2021 the school received £8,525. This was used in the following way -
- to fund individual play and counselling sessions which ran throughout partial and full school closures.
- to fund professional individual educational assessments
- to fund in class Teaching Assistant support
- to fund participation in After School opportunities
- to ensure Pupil Premium children have access to all curriculum enrichment activities
- to secure catch up arrangements provided personalised learing opportuntities for all Pupil Premium children
- to fund additional outdoor learning opportunties eg Forest School
The impact of this was that:
- pupils accessed a wide range of After School clubs
- therapy sessions successfully supported individuals throughout the Covid 19 pandemic
- the children made good progress from their starting points
- development of the children's in confidence and self esteem during a very difficult year
