Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium funding is aimed at “closing the gap” between pupils that are seen to be disadvantaged, and those that are not. There are different categories under the heading of Pupil Premium including; Free School Meals, Looked After Children, Adopted Children and Service Families. Each group with a different amount allocated for different needs but all focused on improving outcomes for these pupils and “giving them the best possible start in life”.

At Cove, we allocate funding in a fair and equitable way that benefits all of the pupils and the whole school community to ensure equality of opportunities and academic progress. KS2 SATs attainment and progress data is published on our website which demonstrates the impact of this funding on pupil achievement.

Current funding allocated for targeted learning support may take the form of group or individual tuition from a teacher; one to one or small group support from a learning support assistant or HLTA; specifically designed support materials and learning resources and pastoral support from specialist trained Emotional Literacy Support Assistant.

Covid Catch-up Funding

The catch-up premium was allocated to mainstream schools to be used to mitigate the effects of the disruption to learning caused by coronavirus (COVID-19). The grant was a one-off
payment in the 2020-2021 academic year.  Schools had the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances.

School-led Tutoring
The school-led tutoring grant was provided for schools to support disadvantaged pupils in catch-up learning following the Covid pandemic. This spending focused on providing tuition to pupils eligible for pupil premium but also includes pupils with other types of disadvantage or additional needs.
