Early Years Pupil Premium Strategy 2022-23
Pupil Premium Funding is additional funding used for those children who are considered to be at a disadvantage. These children are pupils who either claim or have claimed free school meals at any point in the last six years (referred to as Ever 6 children) and pupils in care (referred to as LAC - Looked After Children or CIC -Children in Care) or who left care through adoption or another formal route (PLAC -Previously looked after children). National figures show that these groups of children do not achieve as well as their peers academically and the Pupil Premium Funding enables schools to put additional support in place in order to address any inequalities. All schools are tasked to diminish the difference between disadvantaged children and others in terms of attainment.
In 2022-2023 we will continue to use our artist in residence and creative interventions to close the attainment gaps for Pupil Premium children. More details about this strategy will follow when we have taken our base line assessments.
This provision is in continuous review but is formally reflected upon and reviewed on a termly basis in line with our pupil progress meetings.
