Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding. We continuously review our provision, and our evaluation focuses on academic gains and how pupils’ self-confidence has developed as a consequence of the intervention. Where an intervention is not working, we either change how we are doing it, or stop it altogether. Our school governors have a good understanding of the Pupil Premium funded activities and their impact, and challenge our school to narrow the achievement gap.

We measure the impact of Pupil Premium Grant spending by tracking every pupil’s progress and knowing every child’s needs. We measure the impact of quality class teaching and every intervention, using a variety of impact data, including:

  •   Lesson observations

  •   Work in books

  •   Pupil interviews

  •   Parent and carer surveys

  •   Attendance data

  •   Individual pupil target-setting data
