Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2021- 2022
Pupil Premium funding is additional funding given to schools to support pupils who are eligible.
There are a variety of reasons why your child may be entitled to this funding which includes:
Pupil Premium at Ightenhill Primary School
The Government believes school leaders are best placed to assess their pupils’ needs and use the funding to improve attainment, drawing on evidence of effective practice. It is up to school leaders to decide how to spend the pupil premium.
Evidence suggests that pupil premium spending is most effective when schools use a tiered approach. Therefore at Ightenhill we focus on:
Our range of targeted strategies are reviewed regularly by Senior Leaders and Governors. Strategies are evidenced based and we take into account national research as well as reviewing approaches that have been used in school to determine whether they have been effective for our children or not. This academic year (2021-2022) the school has been allocated additional funding which includes the Recovery Premium Funding, aimed at supporting identified pupils who's education has been affected by the pandemic.
Our in-school champions are:
Mr S Grimshaw (COG / Pupil Premium governor)
Mrs K Dunderdale (DHT/ Pupil Premium champion)
