Pupil Premium / Recovery Curriculum
Pupil Premium Funding
Pupil premium funding is additional funding, for publicly funded schools, in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Pupil premium funding is available to:
- local authority-maintained schools, including special schools and pupil referral units (PRUs)
- voluntary-sector alternative provision (AP), with local authority agreement
- special schools not maintained by the local authority (NMSS)
- academies and free schools, including special and AP academies
Please find below information about Pupil Premium funding and our school. These documents provide information about our school’s use of pupil premium funding. It outlines how we intend to spend the funding and the effect that previous spending had within school.
Pupil Premium Spending Strategy and Impact Statement
The Pupil Premium Spending Strategy and Impact Statement 2022-23 details our school’s use of pupil premium funding (and recovery premium for the 2022-2023 academic year) to help improve the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils. It outlines our pupil premium strategy, how we intend to spend the funding in this academic year and the effect that last year’s spending of pupil premium had within our school.
Catch Up Funding 2020-2021
Children across the country experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19) between March – July 2020. Those from the most vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds are likely to be amongst those hit hardest. The impact of any lost time in education is likely to be substantial and the scale of our response this academic year must match the scale of the challenge.
Catch-Up Funding has been designed to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19), the grant will only be available for the 2020 to 2021 academic year. In planning the use of this Catch-Up Funding, we have referred to the evidence within the EEF guidance. We have taken into consideration a tiered approach to school planning in order to ensure we focus upon those aspects which it is believed will rapidly address the priorities and barriers identified for our school.
