Pupil Premium Strategy 2021-22

Possible Barriers to Learning: 


  •   Poor working memory

  •   Emotional and/or social needs

  •   Poor language and communication skills

  •   Parents reluctant to engage with school

  •   Low self confidence of pupils

  •   Low expectations of parents/carers

  •   Home environment may not be conducive to learning

  •   Maturity of the child 


The Government believes it is unacceptable for childrens success to be determined by their social circumstances. Pupil Premium payments are made to school for children who are in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) and are intended  as a means to raise levels of achievement for all disadvantaged pupils and to close the gap between disadvantaged children and their peers. Pupil Premium is also given to those children who are or have been 'looked after' by the Local Authority or those pupils who have parents serving in the armed forces.


If you are claim the following benefits, your child may be eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant:-

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance

  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit
  • Children who get paid these benefits directly, instead of through a parent or guardian, can also get free school meals.
