What is Pupil Premium and why is it important?
National statistics show that poverty has a detrimental impact on children’s learning. There is a gap in standards between children from very low income families and all other children. This is a finding based on average statistics: many children from very low income families are high achievers; but many are not.
Schools are provided with public funds, called ‘pupil premium’, to reduce the gap in standards . There are no hard and fast rules about how to use the money. Each school makes its own decision based on the unique needs of its pupils; and each school is accountable for the use it makes of the funding. The school must demonstrate that pupil premium funding is having a beneficial impact on learning and raising standards for pupils from very low income/ disadvantaged families. For children who have gaps in learning pupil premium helps us resource the school to reduce these. For our more able children from low income homes we are able to maximise their potential and accelerate their progress. The resources needed for these outcomes varies and our thoughtful use of these means all of our pupils benefit as some of our children come from families where there are many challenges in everyday life but not enough to trigger premium payments.
Covid Catch Up Premium
After the challenges of the pandemic for schools became apparent and the damage to learning that it had generated for many children the government made Covid Catch Up Grants available to schools.
The Gants we received in the academic year 2020 21 were utilised as follows:
1. Year 1 mini bubble additional TA support( mini class of 18 Year 1s) to secure Reception lost learning.
3 x 3 hour sessions per week costed at 9 hours @ £11.35 for 2 terms ie 24 weeks =£2,451
2. Additional Teacher for Phonics intervention in Year 1 mini bubble and year 2 bubble for ½ term
Supply costs £120 per day x 5 days£600 / week 6 week term = £3,600
3. Contribution to Apprentice in Year 6 for intervention and well-being support £2,000
4. Investment in White Rose Maths Scheme for catch up and to best support remote learning (texts replace Maths No Problem books invested in in 2019 20) ALL invoices = £3034
