Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 2019/20

 

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding given to schools to support the progress and achievement of vulnerable groups of students. Pupil premium funding is given to pupils in Years 7-11 for a number of reasons:

  • They have been in receipt of free school meals during the last six years
  • They who have been adopted or are looked after by the Local Authority
  • Their parents are serving in the Armed Forces

At Talbot this applies to 57% of our pupils and the total pupil premium funding for September 2019 – August 2020 is £64,815

 

How does Talbot use Pupil Premium?

The curriculum at Talbot is rich and varied, and personalised to meet the needs of each student. The focus on individual students ensures that barriers to learning are identified and appropriate interventions and support are put in place so that students are able to enjoy their learning and achieve.

Pupil Premium is used to close any gaps in attainment between pupils in receipt of pupil premium and others. Talbot has no attainment gap to narrow between pupils in receipt of free school meals or looked After and pupils not in receipt of free schoool meals and not looked After. This budget is therefore used to develop communication skills, provide nurture groups which will develop emotional resilience, and and enable students to access sporting and cultural activities.

A key area for students’ development in Talbot is in communication. Pupil Premium is used to ensure that communication strategies are embedded and implemented throughout school in order that pupils can maximize their communication skills, both verbal and non-verbal. This includes using a range of communication strategies including Makaton, PECS and where appropriate communication technology and aids.

We also use Pupil Premium to offer enrichment and extra-curricular activities which promote self-confidence, independence skills and physical and mental well-being. These include access to sport, outdoor activities and participation in performing arts.

Our aim for our students is that they become confident and resilient young people. We use pupil premium to offer nurture provision for vulnerable students in order to support them to develop resilience and to communicate and manage their emotions.
