Pupil Premium is additional money delegated to the academy and is matched to the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals and who are children of service families.
Each school has the freedom to decide how to spend the money to maximize the impact on pupil progress and attainment. At Yeoman Park Academy we do this in an individual and targeted way, raising the attainment of this group of children, ‘closing the gap’ in achievement.
We have decided to target four main areas;
- Providing opportunities for pupils to generalise their skills in social situations
- Developing communication skills – listening and speaking and understanding
- Occupational therapy, providing support and strategies to enhance pupil development
- Providing mathematics, reading and writing ‘focused learning’ opportunities individually or in groups
Please see our spending review for the most recently completed academic years and plans for spending this funding this year in the documents below.
