Pupil Premium Attainment and Progress at Charnwood
Following school closure due to Covid-19 there is no official data to publish for the academic year 2019-2020 or 2020-2021 – in house data has been supplied to all individuals including teacher assessment for end of year for EYFS, KS1 and KS2. This information is available upon request.
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 2023-24 we will continue to direct our actions guided by 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 and a community that advocates for our learners.

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.
