Pupil Premium Funding Academic Year 2022-23

Total Allocation = £74,400

This figure also includes the £6,525 recovery premium. Pupil Premium funding for the first 7 months of the year is £39,643. Funding for the remaining 5 months of the academic year is will be £28,232. These figures do not include funding for looked after children).

The school summarises the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school as:

  • Under-developed reading, writing and numeracy skills of some of our disadvantaged pupils leading to lower attainment in line with national
  • Oral language skills in EYFS and Year 1 are lower for pupils eligible for PP than other pupils. This slows reading and writing progress in subsequent years.
  • a proportion of children have social and emotional difficulties that prevent them from engaging with learning, at times impacting on their learning and that of others within their class

Below is a summary highlighting the key areas that we plan to spend the pupil premium, please see the full report below for a more detailed description.

  • Increase the number of two-year-old places available in the Nursery
  • Maintain smaller single form entry classes rather than mixed classes to ensure a focused teaching approach – this will be achieved by employing an additional class teacher over the actual requirement.
  • Have a TA available to each class to focus on improving the outcomes for children in Reading, Writing and Maths. The TAs will work with a range of children including low and high prior attainers. The TAs will also work with a whole class, allowing the class teacher to focus on smaller groups.
  • Have a TA with time dedicated to specific targeted interventions.
