The pupil premium is required to be used to support improving outcomes for pupils who may be disadvantaged and to close the gap in pupil achievement between identified cohorts.

 A summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils of the school :

  • Speech and Language in the Early Years is lower than national
  • Pupil Premium children come into the Early Years lower than Age Range Expectations 
  • A percentage of Pupil Premium children come into school lower than their peers and the gaps aren't closing 
  • Issues such as Mental Health/Behaviour/ Esteem/ Social skills that stop a percentage of Pupil Premium children achieving 

Other barriers include:

  • ACE's (adverse childhhod experiences) from within the home environment 
  • low attendance and persistent absentees 
  • high levels of mobility within school

 At Huncoat we are using our Pupil Premium to :

  • To close the gaps between PP children and non PP in reading/ writing and numeracy
  • To offer experiences and opportunities for PP children – in return this has an impact on writing and reading inference
  • To provide PP children who are also GRT with extra support in Reading & Maths to close the gaps
  • To close the gaps between PP and non PP within speech and language in the Early Years
  • To offer PP who struggle with social, emotional, behaviors to learning - opportunities to feel safe/ be listened to through wellbeing sessions/ social skills/ behaviour strategies - so they can learn and access learning to the very best 
  • To support children with behaviours that stop access to learning 
  • To close the gaps within phonics for the Early Years/ Yr1-2 and continue any support into Yr3-4
  • To pay for Pupil Support Officer through attendance to ensure PP have 96%+ attendance
  • To address mental health needs within our children
