Pupil Premium is additional funding provided by the Government to schools to better support pupils who are, or who previously been, eligible for Free School Meals. The funding also supports children who are or have previously been in care and children who are from service families.
The funding is used to close the attainment gap between this group of children and other children in the school by supporting their learning, offering additional experiences and providing alternative resources (for example).
At NPPS, we aim to fully support every child’s journey through school. This funding, however, allows us to implement additional support and opportunities for children in an additional way. We are continuously reviewing and updating our Pupil Premium Strategy, which can be found below, to provide our pupils with the most effective support for their needs.
A review of last year’s Pupil Premium Strategy and our current Pupil Premium Strategy can be found below. This year, all staff have had an input in the current Pupil Premium Strategy, with the needs of their pupils at the forefront of our minds when examining need and how we can support this need. Pupils' barriers to learning are identified in the strategy together with planned actions to overcome these barriers. The 3-year strategy outlines the school's intentions for the Pupil Premium funding for the next 3 years, with a specific annual action plan within the strategy to achieve these longer-term objectives. Please note that the review of the 2019-2020 is currently being completed; this has been held up due to the school's partial closure as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
