The Governing body has decided that this grant will be used to support all pupils entitled to free school meals as well as looked after children to ensure pupil progress and to raise attainment.


All children who are entitled to Pupil Premium will benefit from the employment of additional staff to ensure:

  • Small class sizes across all key stages.
  • A higher adult/pupil ratio
  • The delivery of small group work and targeted early intervention activities where more able are challenged and the less able have more support
  • Delivery of intervention programmes for literacy and numeracy across KS1 and KS2.
  • 1-1 support for targeted SEN children
  • Play therapy to support emotional wellbeing of our most vulnerable pupils in Early Years and KS1


Other spending includes


  • Staff training and CPD opportunities to

train a new reading recovery and a new  numbers count teacher

continue the development of programmes to improve readiness to learn and to develop emotional wellbeing of targeted children.

Training for TAs in intervention programmes for literacy and numeracy in KS2

Focus on development of boys writing

Implement Numicon in school to support practical maths development

  • The development of projects to raise self-esteem and motivation eg. Think yourself great, UK military school teambuilding and self esteem project
  • Support from school based Nugent Care family social worker (2 day per week) to support our most vulnerable families; social, emotional and pastoral needs including a focus on improving their attendance.
  • Purchase of reading and maths resources to ensure improved outcomes for PP children
  • Providing PP children with a school winter coat
  • Ensuring PP children in KS2 will have a subsidised school lunch
  • Payment of Joining fee for Fairshare which gives PP families access to free food
    • Subsidising cost of extended services for PP families who are in crisis.



Funding is also used to ensure an equality of opportunity through


  • Equal access to extra- curricular activities,
  • Equal access to educational trips, visits or residential events
  • The provision of necessary equipment and uniform to ensure readiness to learn and high self esteem


 Financial support/subsidy is dependent upon individual need.


Impact of these measures

The impact of these measures can be seen in a variety of ways; however each individual case is different.  As a school we will closely track and monitor the provision and progress of pupil premium identified children, to ensure we are closing the attainment gap.


We will continue review and monitor our use of pupil premium funding to ensure that we support all students entitled to free school meals and looked after children across the school and continue to close the gap for pupil premium children.
