Pupil Premium Report to Parents
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant for pupils registered as eligible for Free School Meals (FSM); Ever6 pupils (i.e. pupils who have been in receipt of FSM during their primary school years) or those who are looked after by the Local Authority. A premium was also introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. The Pupil Premium will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
The school recognises that pupils and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19) and those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds will be among those hardest hit. The aggregate impact of lost time in education will be substantial, and the scale of our response must match the scale of the challenge.
Due to coronavirus and the school’s forced partial closure, it is not possible to evaluate the impact of pupil premium for all of the 2019-20 academic year. Instead, a report on the grant's impact at the end of the 2020-21 financial year will be made. This report will cover the whole period between September 2019 and March 2021. The report below provides detail about the grant’s use and impact for the period between September 2020 and March 2021.
Due to coronavirus, there is no end of KS2 SATs assessment data available for the 2019-20 academic year, and so it is not possible to benchmark progress against other schools, or against progress within school on previous KS2 outcomes.
