Pupil Premium

Funding for 2021-2022 is £9,415 for our seven pupils eligible for Pupil Premium and in addition, the school is receiving £1012.50 for the catch-up premium.  We will use this to support additional staffing for intervention programmes to enhance progress' to fund extra curricular opportunities, enrichment, music lessons, extra-curricular club participation, residential visit subsidies, counselling and meta-cognition strategies for pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium funding.

In 2020-2021 our school had eight pupils in receipt of pupil premium funding which totalled £10760.  This funding was linked to eligibility for free school meals.  School funded extra staffing to support those pupils in receipt of pupil premium, additional 1:1 tuition, counselling, music tuition and some extra curricular activities to increase participation for children in receipt of Pupil Premium. In addition, we provided children with school laptops from the DfE laptop scheme for vulnerable pupils and those in receipt of Pupil Premium.

Impact: Of the eight children in receipt of Pupil Premium during 2020-2021, most children achieved in-line with their peers with some achieving the 'Exceeding' standard in core subjects. Most children in receipt of Pupil Premium have been able to take advantage of the school music tuition offer and have made good progress in their learning. We believe it is important for our children in receipt of Pupil Premium to take up the offer of learning to play an instrument as evidence from the Cambridge Assessment research demonstrates that a musical education is linked to higher academic achievement and outcomes at GCSE level. One of the aims of our Pupil Premium strategy has been to encourage children in Receipt of Pupil Premium to take part in extra-curricular activities. This has been successful with nearly all children in receipt of Pupil Premium in Key Stage 2 taking up more than one extra-curricular activity. We usually enable children in receipt of Pupil Premium to take part in residential visits and activities but in 2020/2021, this was not possible as our three annual residentials were cancelled due to the Covid-19 restrictions. 

We would ask any parent who thinks they may be eligible for free school meals to contact the school office for further information or view the Cheshire East website for information on how to apply.
