   Pupil Premium

2021/22 – Pupil Premium Allocation - £22,865

The school receives specific funding each year to support children who are in receipt of Free School Meals. The school ensures that this money is spent directly on these children and their progress and attainment is tracked closely. 

Principles for funding allocation: -

*To ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils

*To ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups.  This specifically includes that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are addressed

*In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are eligible for free school meals (or have been eligible in the last 6 years) are socially disadvantaged

*We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals.   We therefore allocate Pupil Premium Funding to support any pupil or groups that the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

In our school Pupil Premium Funding 2021/22will be spent on:

*Home School Link Worker

*Forest Schools sessions

*Enrichment Opportunities

*Educational Visits and Residential breaks

*Teaching Assistant Support for all classes

*ELSA  

*To enable and encourage children to attend after school clubs

*To enable music provision to PP children

*To allow funding as needed to be available to address the challenges of post COVID 19
