Pupil Premium Funding

2020/2021 Estimated Current Allocation: £24,865 in Pupil Premium.

From 2019/20 we will be looking at a 3 year strategy to move away from “time-consuming” full annual reviews. Instead we will look at a “multi-year approach”, such as one review covering a three-year period, with “light touch” annual reviews. Thus following the DFE’s directive which would help schools take a longer view of the support the grant would provide and “align their plan with the wider school improvement strategy”.

Pupil Premium Plan 2019-2022 in response to reports from the Education Endowment Foundation and Sutton Trust, the following provision is planned.

Barriers to learning include language (EYFS literacy 62% 2019) and vocabulary (phonics below national in 2017, 2018), attention, self-esteem and rural isolation (majority of activities beyond school are in nearest town).
