Pupil Premium Strategy

Pupil Premium is allocated to schools at the beginning of each financial year. The allocation is decided by a fixed amount per child, when a family is entitled to free school meals, in care or adopted. The Headteacher has absolute discretion to decide, using all reasonable endeavours, how the pupil premium is spent to ensure maximum benefit to each child.

The Headteacher will as far as is reasonable and practical consult with the governing body, all staff and other interested parties, to assist her in making a well informed decision

Identified barriers to learning: social interaction; lack of parental engagement and support for home learning; SEN difficulties (needing catch up sessions in English and Maths to further improve their understanding; lack of funding for enrichment activities.
