Pupil Premium 2014 - 2015

What is the pupil premium?

 

The Pupil Premium is government money designed to help disadvantaged children and young people to do well at school, to narrow and eventually close the gap between themselves and their peers.

 

Who is eligible for Pupil Premium?

 

  • A pupil who is in receipt of free school meals
  • Pupils who are registered as ‘looked after’ children
  • Pupils that were adopted from care on or after 30th December 2005
  • Children from service families

 

As a school we decided to allocate the Pupil Premium to provide a range of strategies to support those pupils that are eligible for Pupil Premium. These were intended to accelerate their learning and also to promote social inclusion. All of our interventions have been measured against nationally recognized evidence of impact and suitability to meeting the individual needs of our pupils.

 

The three areas we focused on were:

 

  1. Actions focused on behavioral, emotional and social difficulties.
  2. Actions focused on learning and the curriculum.
  3. Actions focused on enrichment beyond the classroom.
