Our Ambition

At Charnwood Primary School we want to nurture all children including those in receipt of Pupil Premium to grow into inspired, confident and inquisitive individuals. We want to support both them and their families to achieve the very best that they are able. We wish to instil a passion for learning and self-improvement long after they leave our school.

Outcomes of our support:

Over all aims of pupil premium spending strategy 2020-2021 support our ADP goals and all spending will support the development of the focus’ below. The focus of these will adapt dependent on pupil need following whole school re-opening and assessment – as such these goals remain ‘live’ and will change as required.

  • English Focus: To build oracy skills and writing stamina.
  • Emotional Resilience and self-regulation – metacognition: To support pupils and their families with their emotional resilience and self-regulation.
  • Understanding and using number: To support pupils with their understanding of number and providing pupils with a solid foundation for learning throughout school.
  • Retention and Recovery of Learning: To improve the retention of learning and skills and to bridge any gaps in learning.

All support will be evaluated and the impact of the support judged. Many of these aims mirror and support those in the whole school ADP thus providing a cohesive focus and aim across all subjects and areas. All analysis will be used to inform future spending.

Diminishing the difference across the curriculum

Our aim is to ensure that all pupil premium pupils are able to attain as well as those not eligible across the curriculum. This is measured both against their peers and national figures. With this aim subject leaders measure progress and attainment in their subjects and identify barriers to address these in their action plans. Pupil premium funding can be requested to support the needs of the action plans and the impact is measured.

In 2021-2022 we will continue to direct our actions to support the three principles of the RADY approach.

1 – Raising awareness of the pupils and barriers for learning in all subjects.

2- Raising expectations of pupil attainment and setting accelerated targets for pupils in order to diminish differences in attainment.

3 – Raising aspirations of pupils through building cultural capital.

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is a Government funded finance stream that is aimed to support the improvement of educational outcomes for groups of disadvantaged children e.g. those in receipt of Free School Meals currently or during the last 6 years ( EVER 6), Service children and Looked After Children.

How should it be spent?

The grant may be spent in the following ways:

  • For the purposes of the school i.e. for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school.
  • For the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies.
  • On community facilities e.g. services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated

The grant does not have to be completely spent by schools in the financial year beginning 1 April; some or all of it may be carried forward to future financial years.
