The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
In the academic year 2023-2024, at Riddings Infant and Nursery School, the percentage of Pupil Premium (PP) children in full time education is 36.2% out of a total of 177 children.
A large proportion of our Pupil Premium funding is used to ensure Quality First Teaching across the school is achieved, as the EEF states that what happens in our classrooms makes the biggest difference to our children and that good teaching for all pupils is of particular benefit to disadvantaged pupils.
We also focus some of our budget on targeted intervention in English and Maths through the use of TAs in the classroom. Positive Play, ELSA, behaviour management and transition activities also make up just some of the emotional support and well-being interventions that also take place to aid our children, as well as the employment of a part-time Family Support Worker, who works with identified families in school and a Joint Wellbeing Mentor who works between Riddings Infant and Nursery and Riddings Junior Schools.
For more information on how our school uses the Pupil Premium Funding, see the reports below.
The 2023/2024 report also includes a summary and evaluation of spending from the previous academic year. The report will next be evaluated in the Autumn term 2024/25.
