Pupil Premium Leader
Mrs Reeve, our Pupil Premium Leader, has the responsibility of leading a whole school programme to improve the outcomes for disadvantaged pupils and narrow the gap with others within the school and nationally.
She works closely with the Senior Leadership Team and the Inclusion Manager to ensure that needs are met in a timely and supportive manner.
The Government has announced that £1 billion of funding has been earmarked for schools to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time due to Covid-19. Although all children have had their education disrupted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, it is likely that disadvantaged and vulnerable groups will have been hardest hit.
It is likely that our funding will be around £16 000. We are currently considering how this will be spent across the school to support pupils and their families.
