Early Years Pupil Premium Strategy 2022-2023
Pupil Premium Funding is additional funding used for those children who are considered to be at a disadvantage. These children are pupils who either claim or have claimed free school meals at any point in the last six years (referred to as Ever 6 children) and pupils in care (referred to as LAC - Looked After Children) or who left care through adoption or another formal route. National figures show that these groups of children do not achieve as well as their peers academically and the Pupil Premium Funding enables schools to put additional support in place in order to address any inequalities. All schools are tasked to diminish the difference between disadvantaged children and others in terms of attainment.
As soon as children turn 3, we check for eligibility of pupil premium which enables families to claim free school meals as well as having extra targeted intervention work for their child.
For the academic year 2021-22 we had 32 children in Autumn term, 39 children in Spring term and 49children in Summer term who received Pupil Premium Funding.
Lorna Rose, our artist is residence works with our identified pupil premium children to address the gaps in attainment using creative media and methods. These interventions are designed specifically around the Target Tracker data outcomes.
Deputy Head Teacher Sally Appadu analyses the assessment data generated by Target Tracker on a regular basis and this informs us of any curriculum gaps in the prime or specific areas of learning that need addressing. This provision is in continuous review but is formally investigated on a termly basis.
