How will we spend our Pupil Premium in 2017-18?
Pupil premium funding is provided by the Department for Education to those pupils who have been entitled to Free School Meals at any point over the last six years or are (or have been) children in care.
We have been allocated £264,000 for this financial year which has been allocated for use by the Governing Body to provide a range of support in order to improve outcomes for pupils.
Please see below the evaluation of our Pupil Premium expenditure in 2015/2016:
Early Years Pupil Premium
From April 2015 the early years pupil premium was introduced to support disadvantaged pupils in their pre-school setting. Priorities for the spending of the academy allocation are reviewed in line with the needs of pupils and include:
- Communication resources;
- Welfare support assistant to ensure high ratio of adult learning support;
- Development of the Early Years environment to support language acquisition;
- Parent sessions / workshops;
- Targeted additional adult support in all prime areas.
Specific details are included in the 2017/18 plan above.
