Pupil Premium Strategy Document 2021-22


Impact of Pupil Premium Funding

The Government introduced the fund in April 2011 to give schools an extra allowance each year for children who:

  • were registered as eligible for free school meals
    had been looked after for 6 months or longer

The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement, and close the gap between them and their peers. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority pupils and post adoptive children.

Spending Rationale for PP funding

Our approach will be responsive to common challenges and individual needs, rooted in robust diagnostic assessment, not assumptions about the impact of disadvantage. The approaches we have adopted complement each other to help pupils excel. To ensure they are effective we will:

  • ensure disadvantaged pupils are challenged in the work that they’re set
  • act early to intervene at the point need is identified
  • adopt a whole school approach in which all staff take responsibility for disadvantaged pupils’ outcomes and raise expectations of what they can achieve
