The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between themselves and their peers.
At Polperro, we use a tiered approach to spending the premium effectively, targeting spending across the following 3 areas below.
Teaching We arrange training and professional development for our staff to improve the impact of teaching and learning for pupils.
Academic support We investigate the barriers stopping our pupils from succeeding at school and use the pupil premium to fund extra help.
Wider approaches We include non-academic use of the pupil premium to increase pupils’ confidence and resilience and encourage pupils to be more aspirational.
Please see below our Pupil Premium Impact Statement to view details of how effective we were in diminishing differences and our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement for our strategy for 2020-21.
The Chair of Governors (Lucy Finnimore) and Pupil Premium Governor (Helen Casson) are responsible for monitoring the impact of Premium Funding and reports to the full Governing Body are made each term.
