The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
It is the statutory responsibility of the school to report the amount of the school’s allocation from the Pupil Premium grant(5) in respect of the current academic year; details of how it is intended that the allocation will be spent; details of how the previous academic year’s allocation was spent, and the effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils at the school in respect of whom grant funding was allocated.
In the 2017-18 financial year, we received £5860. This money was largely spent on targeted Level 3 Teaching Assistant support and SENCo support.
