Pupil premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap with peers. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Whilst schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium in any way they choose, we are required to publish online information about how we have used the funding.

3. Barriers to future attainment (for pupils eligible for PP including high ability)
 
In-school barriers
A. Some PP children have SEN which may result in lower attainment and slower rates of progress.
B. Oral language skills in FS/KS1 children are lower for some children eligible for PP.
External barriers
A. Attendance rates for some children eligible for PP are low. This slows progress during the term/year.
B. Home support for some children eligible for PP is limited due to educational abilities of parents.
C. Non-attendance in a setting before school leads to slower rates of settling in and conformity to structure/routine.
