Pupil Premium Impact Statement 2019 2020
The impact of pupil premium funding this year has been significantly affected by Covid-19 since the beginning of March 20.
All funding identified to be spent after this point has been unable to take place as significant amounts of funding was allocated to removing the barriers for families to attending residential and trip opportunities.
The impact of funding utilised for intervention is also difficult to evidence as many children were not in school for many weeks and months and this continuity and therefore impact was greatly impacted.
It is anticipated that the carry forward figure (once guidance is confirmed by DfE) will coupled with the catch up funding to target and support disadvantaged and vulnerable children who have been significantly adversely affected during this period of lockdown.
Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Pupil Premium School Statement
The government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. This funding has been allocated to schools on the basis of the number of pupils in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) and the number of children who are looked after (in care for more than 6 months). This grant, which is additional to main school funding, is seen by the government as the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children from more deprived backgrounds and their wealthier peers to ensure that they do not fall behind their peers. The ultimate aim is to ‘close the gap’ between pupils from different backgrounds.
At Boyton Primary School we support all of our pupils to do their best regardless of their background by providing high quality teaching that is supported by interventions from highly skilled teachers and teaching assistants. The class teachers, SENCO, TA's and Senior Leadership Team work closely together to plan, monitor and evaluate the provision for all pupils and the impact of all intervention groups. We welcome the additional funding that this scheme is providing to allow us to develop this provision further.
