Pupil Premium/Catch up Premium

We are ambitious for all of our children and are proud of our success in supporting children eligible for pupil premium funding. Our data shows us that whole school initiatives that support high quality first teaching as well as personalised pastoral support have had the biggest impact on outcomes and this underpins our current PPM and COVID-19 Catch Up Strategy.

Based on our previous impact to date and needs of our children, then our PPM and COVID19 catch up strategy for this academic year (2021-2022) has these key themes:

1. To prioritise reading and language development so that PPM children and those needing reading catch up support are given the best chance to access the curriculum and express themselves in line with their peers

2. To ensure their well-being is catered for so they are confident, independent learners and feel supported to achieve and can report that they have self-belief and improved self-esteem

3. To ensure they have the necessary information, experiences and cultural capital to access the curriculum and succeed in line with their peers with equal opportunity and access to the wider curriculum

4. To ensure they are able to attend school fully and have equity in accessing remote learning if required

Kate Goodger, Deputy Headteacher, has leadership responsibility for pupil premium children and has based this strategy on looking at data, what has worked well, evidence based research, through talking to our pupil premium children and in completing diagnostic learning walks.

In the latter half of Spring Term 2022, we are also planning to start catch up tutoring for key children who need this support. This will be carried out by a qualified teacher.
