Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the past 6 years. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. Please see below for information regarding how the pupils premium was spent in the last academic year, the impact of this funding, and the plans for future spending.
Our whole school ethos is to diminish the difference through accelerated progress in academic learning and social emotional wellbeing. Due to the transient nature of pupils in a short stay school, the pupil premium funding is mainly used to employ additional staff to support the transition of pupils into a teaching and learning environment at Oakfield. This may be on a one to one basis building up to small groups as necessary depending on the individual circumstances of each pupil.
