Pupil Premium

This Strategy is reviewed with the Governor responsible for ‘Disadvantaged Children’ at the end of each academic year. 

Eligible pupils at the school face a range of different barriers to educational achievement. These vary widely in individual cases but can include: lack of access to educational resources, lack of access to cultural opportunities, lack of suitable equipment, broken family structures, low parental engagement, trauma, housing issues, diet and special educational needs and disabilities.

Tracking of impact:


To shape spending priorities we:

  • Carry out an audit of the individual needs of the children by all staff.
  • Identify individual barriers to progress for each child and use these to design extra provision.
  • Conduct a pupil voice questionnaire
  • Use documents such as the Sutton Trust Education Endowment Foundation Toolkit for schools as part of the analysis, as well as looking at how other schools were using this grant.
  • Closely track the academic results of children at regular periods

To measure impact we use a regular termly analysis. This includes:

  • % of disadvantaged children on track to make and/or exceed expected progress at each Key Stage.
  • Tracking of behaviour and attitudes to learning for all PP children through the Learning Mentor
  • Termly Pupil Progress Meetings include specific discussion of PP children
