Pupil Premium & Catch Up
The Department for Education (DfE) provides additional funding, known as Pupil Premium, in order that specific groups of pupils aged between 5 and 16 years, who may be disadvantaged by virtue of their family circumstances, can be supported in their progress and attainment. Pupil Premium falls into three categories: Deprivation Pupil Premium Looked After Pupil Premium Pupil Premium for Service Families Woodfield School’s fund for 2018-19 was £60,775.
School Context & Deployment
The pupil premium is a grant given to schools to raise the attainment of eligible pupils and to close the attainment gap between these pupils and their peers. For the course of the academic year 2020-21, 68 pupils were eligible for the pupil premium funding.*
The allocation of funding this year is going towards supporting the sensory, behavioural and emotional needs of our students. The pupil barriers to success outlined below have been identified as having a significant impact on attainment and have been formed as a result of discussions with parents, referrals from in-school professionals and teaching staff.
