Pupil Premium Statement

 The government continues to provide funding targeted at addressing underlying inequalities and aiming to tackle the disadvantages that some children experience in life. Pupil Premium funding is aimed at children who are entitled to free school meals; children who have been ‘Looked After’ for 6 months or more and children from families in the armed forces. This funding includes any child who has been entitled to free school meals in the last 6 years (FSM6). As a school we have allocated the money carefully to ensure that our vulnerable children have every opportunity to become an empowered learner and achieve the best results possible.

The barriers to learning faced by Penpol students in receipt of Pupil Premium are broad and varied. We seek to personalise our provision as far as possible to ensure greatest impact for each eligible child. Some more common themes include low self-esteem, reluctance to write, anxiety about school, less regular parental engagement and regular absences. Some children have limited access to cultural experiences out of school. Although progress measures are strong, significantly fewer eligible pupils are achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and maths combined. Last year, no disadvantaged pupils achieved the greater depth standard in this combined measure. A key aim of our pupil premium strategy this year is to develop more versatile and robust learning skills.

This year, we have been allocated £123,635 in pupil premium funding.  We have set out below how we plan to spend this. In addition to this, we have written an action plan setting out further initiatives to support disadvantaged learners across Penpol during the 2021-2022 academic year.

This year, we will be monitoring the impact of our spending rigorously and more regularly:

  • Assessment data for each class will be reviewed termly at progress meetings, exploring progress and attainment and any specific barriers faced by children in receipt of pupil premium.
  • An intervention map will track the interventions and initiatives provided for disadvantaged learners and for those with other potential barriers to learning. This will be updated and reviewed termly by the Headteacher, Inclusion Lead and Pupil Premium Champion, informing ongoing provision adjustments.
