2016-17

The allocation for Pupil Premium Funding for our school this year is £9820.  As we have a small proportion of pupils with Pupil Premium Funding, we identify the barriers to achievement individually and prioritise interventions based on this.  As such our Pupil Premium Funding allocation will be spent on interventions such as those detailed above.  These approaches have been identified as there is statistical evidence to show that these interventions are effective (see Sutton Trust, Kent Educational Psychology Service and previous Impact of Interventions).  We will measure the impact of these through discussions with staff, regular Progress Review Meetings, monitoring interventions at each intervention period (and sharing this with governors) and at the next Pupil Premium Strategy Review.  The next Pupil Premium Strategy Review will take place in September 2017.
