The pupil premium for 2017/18 is £10,510, this will be spent on:

The main barriers to educational achievement of the pupils eligible for pupil premium in our school is self esteem and confidence. The children benefit from small group work in different subjects and in class support provided by Teaching Assistants.
Self esteem and confidence is also boosted by offering attendance at after school clubs for these children.
The impact of the pupil premium is measured by observing the children’s attitudes to learning, their confidence during lessons and playtimes and their academic attainment at the end of the year.
