The school is given an amount of money each year called Pupil Premium to support vulnerable children who meet specific National criteria (ie children who are eligible for Free School Meals or who have been in the past)
Barriers to learning:
In our school, approximately 44% of these children have SEN so need additional support to make expected progress each year.
Other children are not able to take part in extra curricular activities, after school clubs, residential visits etc and the Pupil Premium funds enable the children to take part in everything we have to offer.
Because of the special circumstances of some pupils, Pupil Premium money is used to enable children to take part in activities that help social interaction.
We are committed to raising standards for every child and invest resources and time to ensure that every child receives the support and challenge they require to succeed, in our 'Every Child Matters' approach.
Please see the attached document which details the impact of the Pupil Premium money on raising standards at our school.
