Pupil Premium is a Government allocation of money to support pupils who:
Pupil Premium allocation is spent on supporting any pupil who fulfils any of the above criteria. Support may be additional Teaching Assistant hours; 1-1 tuition; financial aid to attend residential and other school activities; support to attend extra-curricular activities; continuing professional development for staff in order for them to more closely support vulnerable pupils; and resources to support individual pupils.
In such small cohorts, evidencing the main barriers to achievement, or the impact of pupil premium spending on attainment could potentially identify specific pupils. A detailed Pupil Premium Strategy is held in school, and is available on request to those with authority to monitor this. However, data shows that support has enabled pupils to make at least expected progress, and to keep pace with their peers. It has also enabled pupils to gain in confidence both with school work, and in social activities.
Pupil premium spending and support is reviewed each term by the Governing Body.
