The amount allocated to the school for 2019-20 is £134,790. The school plans to continue to support pupils in a variety of ways similar to the interventions put in place in previous years (see below). This year the school has managed to fund some improvements in the infrastructure of the school which will also, inevitably, benefit all pupils, including Pupil Premium pupils.
The amount allocated to the school for 2018-19 was £134,325. The money was spent supporting pupils in the most appropriate way to ensure they have the same experience as other pupils in the school and that they fulfil their potential. We continued to pay particular attention last year to ensuring that the interventions were personalised and aimed at the individual, especially for Year 11 pupils.
Such interventions included additional mentoring, additional 1-1 support, especially in literacy and numeracy, funding small group work, contributing to, or paying entirely for, educational visits and trips (including residential courses organised by the armed forces), peripatetic music lessons, purchasing necessary school equipment and materials for pupils, paying for vocational college courses and funding transport to attend these activities. The school also completed the construction of a 3G artificial pitch, which will benefit all pupils including Pupil Premium pupils.
We believe this wide variety of interventions, alongside whole school initiatives which ensure quality-first teaching and learning, addresses the needs of pupils, recognises the necessity of considering different influences in a child's life and will minimise the effects of a background which may be considered to be disadvantaged.
