‘Pupil Premium’ is a fixed sum of money allocated to schools to support those children who most need additional support. It is targeted to help children overcome the barriers they face to their learning. The main barriers we have identified are:
- Language development (specifically talking and reading)
- Social and emotional aspects of learning
- Enrichment and experience
- Learning to learn - learning dispositions
Attendance & Punctuality (including ‘persistent absenteeism’)
