Pupil Premium

In February 2021, the government announced a one-off recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery, in addition to the annual pupil premium grant

.

The recovery premium provides additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. Building on the pupil premium, this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils and is set out on our 2021-2022 Pupil Premium Strategy.

 

At Shakespeare Infant School, we spend the Pupil Premium Grant on evidence-based approaches to supporting pupils. In line with the Education Endowment Foundation's pupil premium guide we focus on the use of activities which:

  • support the quality of teaching, such as staff professional development
  • provide targeted academic support, such as targetted interventions
  • deal with non-academic barriers to success in school, such as attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support

School receiving the Pupil Premium Grant and the Recovery Pupil Premium Funding can:

  • spend the recovery premium on a wider cohort of pupils than those who attract the funding
  • direct recovery premium spending where they think the need is greatest

 

Shakespeare Infant School supports the  link between pupil health and wellbeing and attainment

 

Research evidence shows that education and health are closely linked. So promoting the health and wellbeing of pupils within schools  has the potential to improve their educational outcomes and their health and wellbeing outcomes. 

 

Key points as highlighted in the publication below:

 

1. Pupils with better health and wellbeing are likely to achieve better academically.

2. Effective social and emotional competencies are associated with greater health and wellbeing, and better achievement.

3. The culture, ethos and environment of a school influences the health and wellbeing of pupils and their readiness to learn.

4. A positive association exists between academic attainment and physical activity levels of pupils.

School leaders with responsibility for administering the PPG have used this information to update the strategy and also drawn on these helpful publications from the Children’s Commissioner and the Education Endowment Foundation:

Pupil Premium Expenditure

Schools receive extra funding for children who are eligible for free school meals, children in care and children of service families. These children statistically are less likely to achieve as well academically as their peers. Hence extra funding is allocated to school to support their learning. The following table shows expenditure at this school over the last academic years and  proposed expenditure for the financial year 2021-2022. Note: Recovery Premium information not included at present.
