Pupil premium are the service premium is additional funding given to schools that aim to contribute towards closing the attainment gaps for disadvantaged pupils and to assist with the pastoral needs of children with parents in the armed forces.
What have we done with it?
In January 2016 we introduced the role of Pupil Premium Key worker to focus on achievement and inclusion for pupil premium children. Our Pupil Premium Key worker (Mrs Barrett) works closely with our Inclusion Manager (Mrs Russell) to support these pupils academically, socially and emotionally. Mrs Barrett supports individual pupils both in the classroom and at playtimes. She has developed an individual profile for each child, in conjunction with both the children and parents, to identify areas of need and how best she can support them.
Teachers can also sign up weekly for Mrs Barrett to support specific pupils at set times in the classroom. Additional support also includes the running of three different lunch time clubs – one for KS1, one for KS2 and one for siblings to meet up over lunch, a ‘Talk and Play’ group after school on a Thursday and a homework club for pupil premium children on a Wednesday.
