Pupil Premium Strategy September 2020
What is Pupil Premium funding?
- • The Government is committed to narrowing the achievement gap between the families that are on lower income households and those that have higher incomes.
- • It has therefore given a set amount of money per child for every child that has been eligible for free school meals, has been in the care of the local authority in the last 6 years or has been adopted in the last 6 years.
- • It is then up to the school to decide how to spend the money so that all children can reach their potential.
- • Pupil Premium funding is allocated under a ‘financial year’ model rather than an ‘academic year’ model.
- • Our champions for Pupil Premium children are Martin Burns (Teacher) Danielle Kenny (Attendance officer) Tabitha Smith (Head teacher), Larissa Ritchie (Staff Governor).
- • We track the attainment and progress of pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium funding on a termly basis and report this to Governors
- • This strategy is reviewed annually with the full Governing Body in the Summer term.

|A||Complex social and emotional needs and low levels of resilience.|
Such needs will have been impacted upon by lockdown and school closure. They can have a detrimental impact on relationships, self-esteem, the ability to deal with disappointment and a capacity to learn.
Schools have an important role to play in supporting all children to overcome any trauma and its resulting impact.
