Current Pupil Premium Strategy 2021/24

As in previous years, WesleyMethodist Primary School will continue to use the pupil premium to improve the progress and attainment of our disadvantaged pupils. The disproportionately high impact of COVID-19 on the education of disadvantaged pupils makes this more important than ever.

For the academic years 2021 to 2024, we will:

  • use our recovery premium alongside our pupil premium funding and report on the use of them as a single sum in our strategy statement
  • publish our strategy statement by 31st December 2021 - this is to enable us to take the needs of our new Reception intake into account. This expenditure will then be evaluated each year.
  • demonstrate how our spending decisions are informed by a range of evidence

Rest assured, our disadvantaged pupils will receive the support they need during the autumn term.  Some of the ways we will support these children are: 

  • Additional opportunities to read to adults in school
  • Targeted support throughout and beyond the school day in phonics, reading and maths
  • Subsidy of trips and visitors to broaden life experiences and gain a sense of awe and wonder
  • A wide range of clubs and enhancements to enable children to develop and strengthen talents and interests
  • Interventions, nurture groups, friendship circles and 1:1 counselling to support mental health and wellbeing
  • Family support from our pastoral and attendance team.
