Pupil Premium Spending Plan
What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil premium is additional funding to schools to enable them to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.
How is it spent?
The Government recomend 3 main areas that the Pupil Premium funding is used for:
Investing in high-quality teaching, for example:
- training and professional development for teachers
- recruitment and retention
- support for teachers early in their careers
2. Targeted academic support
Additional support for some pupils focussed on their specific needs, for example:
- one-to-one tuition
- small group tuition
- speech and language therapy
3. Wider approaches
Support for non-academic issues that impact success in school, such as attendance, behaviour and social and emotional challenges. For example:
- school breakfast clubs / after school activities
- Funding of extra curricular activities providing wider experiences for children
- counselling to support emotional health and wellbeing
- help with the cost of educational trips or visits
Schools can choose to spend their additional funding on any of the areas above and also on schemes that are most relevant for their school and are recomended by the Educaiton Endowment Foundation.
