Pupil Premium

As per DFE guidance, The Pupil Premium Strategy for the 2021-22 academic year will be published by Dec 2021 on the new template. Please click the link to see how the EEF (Education Endowment Foundation) recommend that the Pupil Premium is used so that children get the best education and maximise their learning opportunities to ‘narrow the gap.’


Ofsted (June 2021)

"Learning to read is at the heart of the school’s work. The teaching of phonics is well organised from the moment children start in Reception. There are high expectations that all pupils will be confident and fluent readers. Staff make useful checks on pupils’ progress. They ensure that pupils at risk of falling behind receive the precise support they need to keep up. Leaders’ investments in books that will enhance pupils’ vocabulary, and in reading resources, are developing a love of reading. As a result, pupils become increasingly confident and fluent readers as they move through the school."

"Leaders have thought carefully about the design of the curriculum. Subject plans are ambitious and detailed. They specify what pupils need to know and do in each year group. Relevant training is helping to build staff confidence and subject knowledge. Where subjects have received greater attention, pupils learn new knowledge well. In mathematics, for example, staff revisit meaningful learning so that pupils can recall number facts when working out calculations. Pupils do well in writing. In Reception, most children can write simple words and sentences using the correct punctuation."

"Trustees and local governors are committed and well informed of the school’s priorities. They understand how the quality of education is improving. Governors hold leaders to account. For example, they scrutinise how additional funding for disadvantaged pupils is making a difference to their learning."

       Pupil Premium Eligibility            

Dear Parents,

Families who receive certain benefits may be eligible for Pupil Premium funding. By applying for Free School Meals (whether your child decides to have them or not), school will receive £1,320 per year additional funding in the form of Pupil Premium for your child. This is an invaluable source of income to school in times when budgets are being drastically reduced.

If your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, you must still complete an application form for school to receive the Pupil Premium funding, even though your child receives Universal Free School Meals.

Last year, our Pupil Premium funding meant that we could employ additional adults to support children’s learning and social/emotional needs. We can also provide your child with a FREE jumper, book bag and PE top from Kids Klobber.

If you are in receipt of one of the following benefits, please complete the slip below and we will support you with your application:

  • Universal Credit with an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guarantee element of Pension Credit
  • Working Tax Credit run-on (paid for the four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
  • Child Tax Credit (with no Working Tax Credit) with an annual income of no more than £16,190

Yours faithfully,

Mrs T Hayzen

  How did our "Disadvantaged Learners" perform in 2019?


We are incredibly proud of our end of Key Stage 2 outcomes for pupils currently or previously eligible for Free School Meals (FSM/Ever 6/Disadvantaged Learners).  Pupils reaching the expected standard was significantly above National in reading, maths and combined scores and the same as National in Writing.

Our focus moving forwards is on increasing the number of pupils achieving the higher standard of "greater depth" in all areas,  particularly in writing.
