To close the gap between disadvantaged and non dis-advantaged pupils

Using the Senco to support small groups of disadvantaged pupils

Barriers to learning these priorities address

Filling in gaps from their previous learning allowing them to make accelerated progress using evidence based teaching interventions.

Projected spending




Wider strategies for current academic year




To improve attendance of disadvantaged children.

Attendance for disadvantaged children is generally lower than for non-disadvantaged children, therefore we are spending more money for administration to ensure that we improve poor attendance.

To improve parental engagement

Providing a parent support worker and a pupil support worker who work together to support the families

To aid pupils in dealing with social and emotional difficulties

Providing a room where children can go to complete their work if they are struggling to access the learning in the classroom

To provide disadvantaged children with opportunities to experience extra-curricular activities including residential visits and learning outside the classroom

Support class trips to enrich the curriculum for all pupils.

To improve their readiness to learn

Ensuring pupils arrive on time, we are funding taxis and providing free places at our breakfast club.

Barriers to learning these priorities address

Improving attendance and readiness to learn for the most disadvantaged pupils.

Projected spending



Monitoring and Implementation




Mitigating action


Reaching the desired progress target in Reading and Maths

Use of additional teachers and intervention to provide focused and targeted support.

Half termly data analysis reviewed by SLT.

Targeted support

Ensuring enough time is given to intervention staff to plan, liaise and feedback to the class teacher.

Intervention staff are timetabled in preparation and feedback time.

Assessment of interventions made from starting point to end point.

Wider strategies

Engaging families who struggle to build relationships with the school

Increased parent support workers working hours.


Review: last year’s aims and outcomes




Ensure that children attend school regularly

School attendance improved.

Improve outcomes for disadvantaged pupils

Attainment in writing for disadvantaged pupils improved from the previous year. However, reading attainment of the disadvantaged pupils did not show improvement, this included results for 2 children with EHCPs working below the standard.

Reduce Speech & Language difficulties in KS1

Due to increasing social and emotional difficulties, the staff member responsible for speech and language development was redeployed. A new S & L LSA has been recruited.

To aid pupils in dealing with social and emotional difficulties

This had some success for children who received support, however due to an ever increasing proportion of the school population, this has been increased further for the coming year.


Free School Meal Eligibility

Are you in receipt of any of the benefits listed below? If so, your child could be entitled to free school meals and attract the pupil premium - additional resources for the school.

 Income Support

 Income-Based Jobseekers Allowance

 Support under part VI of the Immigration & Asylum Act 1999

 Child Tax Credit - provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) that does not exceed £16,190

 Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit

 Income-Related Employment & Support Allowance

 Working Tax Credit 'run-on' - the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit.

If your child is in early years or years 1 or 2, it is important to let the school know if your child qualifies for free school meals as this allows the school to access additional resources, the 'pupil premium', which can be used for extra support. You will need to provide evidence of the benefits that you receive to the school office for checking.

If your child is in years 3-6, you must apply for free school meals online

The office staff will be happy to assist you with any queries. All information is handled in strictest confidence.
