Details of our Pupil Premium and our Sport Premium can be found below.
What is Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
What are the Barriers?
The barriers are as individual as our pupils are. That is why we judge it to be vitality important to adapt the pupil premium funded activity towards whole-school strategies that impact on all pupils, and specific support targeting pupil premium pupils. Some disadvantages are not always identified by the official statistics; therefore specific support for pupil premium pupils also enables focussed support to target other under-performing pupils.
Our Vision for Disadvantaged Pupils

Our Framework for Supporting Disadvantaged Pupils
Attendance & Attainment
If the pupils aren’t in the building it doesn’t matter how great our teaching is they are not going to benefit from it.
The link between absence and attainment at KS2 and KS4 DFE
If assessment is given formatively to the learner and/or the teacher about the learner’s performance relative to learning goals, progress is accelerated.

Behaviour and Belonging
Poor and disruptive behaviour in the classroom reduces children’s ability to concentrate and absorb information.
Below the radar: low-level disruption in the country’s classrooms
When students feel that they are a part of a school community, they are more likely to perform better academically and are more motivated to learn.

Classrooms and Careers
Quality first teaching is the best way to improve outcomes for pupil premium students.
The importance of teaching (National College for school leadership)
Pupils from disadvantaged families are more likely to be uncertain about the qualifications they need to access their chosen career and get the skills they need.
