Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils to close the gap between them and their peers. Our barriers to achievement for a significant amount of children in this group are the following:


Speech and language

Vocabulary development

Attendance at school

Social skills

Emotional development

Mental health

Wider experiences beyond the Charlestown Community


We use Maslow's triangle of need to identify and direct spend initially as we believe no child is ready to learn and achieve until all their basic needs are met. Our spend reflects this. Impact will be measured in several ways:


Increased attendance

Increased progress in learning areas

Increased confidence and attitudes to learning

Reduced behavioural incidents (greater self regulation and self awareness)


Our Pupil Premium lead is Ms Boocker,

Our Policy was reviewed in April 2021.

Our spend was reviewed in October 2021

Our next review is January 2022

We will measure the impact of spend in several ways: attainment and progress of individuals and cohorts, attendance and punctuality statistics, behavioural incidents, pupil voice and questionnaires.
