Our pupil premium strategy (including use of the recovery premium) is downloadable at the bottom of this page.
The strategy details how we are using this funding to help children eligible for the pupil premium and provide the support, opportunities and experiences to which every child in our school community is entitled.
It reflects our whole-school belief that every child can reach their potential, regardless of circumstance. As the Rt Hon Justine Greening says in the page at the DfE link below: "Talent and hard work alone should determine how far people can go in life, whoever you are, wherever you are from."
However, we also recognise additional challenges faced by all of our children - especially during these times after the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns. Our pupil wellbeing survey showed that many of these challenges have had a greater impact on disadvantaged children.
These challenges are diverse, and require additional support beyond the pupil premium and recovery premium budget. Our whole-school hierarchy (below) shows how various layers and provision build towards children who are well-rounded members of society and our community, and well prepared for the next stage in their education and later life.
We have therefore allocated funding from other areas of the school's budget to support pupil premium and recovery premium funding so that every child, whether pupil premium or not, can access every step of the hierarchy.
Some of the provision we have in place is part-funded by our pupil premium and recovery funding, and part-funded by our budgets from other areas.
