Learning Together for Life

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is allocated to schools of statutory school age from low income families who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), for children who are looked after by the Local authority (LAC) and to children whose parents are currently serving in the Armed Forces. Schools are able to spend the pupil premium as they see necessary to support the children who are in receipt of it. However, for accountability purposes, schools are required to show clearly how and where the money is spent.

Across the Holy Cross Federation, cohort sizes can be very small. As a result, numbers of children receiving support from the various projects are not commented on, in order to preserve anonymity and confidentiality.  

Wormegay – number of pupils eligible – 6
Total Pupil Premium received: Wormegay £10,560

Identified barriers to educational achievement for children attending Holy Cross Federation:  

  • Specific SEND issues – additional TA support for small group and 1:1 learning.
  • Behaviour and emotional needs, including bereavement, influence of home issues, self-esteem, lack of confidence – 1:1 pastoral sessions.
  • Attendance – letters sent regularly and meetings held to support improvements in attendance.
  • Low base when starting school, particularly phonics awareness – additional 1:1 sessions, parents meetings held.
  • Financial Support needed to ensure full access to opportunities at school – support given where needed for attending trips.

At Wormegay CE Primary, the expected Pupil premium grant for 2018/19 is £10,560.  The strategy will be reviewed again in August 2019.
