The pupil premium is a government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from deprived backgrounds.

Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds under achieve compared to their non-deprived peers. The Pupil Premium is provided to enable these pupils to be supported to reach their potential.

Pupil premium spending

We plan to spend the pupil premium on the following:

  • Having enhanced support staff
  • Increased hours for TAs to carry out intervention groups
  • Targeted intervention groups
  • Pre-teaching
  • Before-school tuition and homework clubs
  • Curriculum enrichment opportunities
  • Curriculum resources to support learning

How we measure impact

Pupil premium children are identified at the beginning of the school year or when they arrive as a new pupil. Class teachers, phase leads, the SENCo and the Inclusion Team work together, along with the Senior Leadership Team, to map out what the school can do to enhance their learning journey through the school year and beyond. This is monitored every 2 terms with both formative and summative assessment information, which is also shared with parent/carers during parent/carer meetings. At the end of the school year interventions culminate in a final data drop, informing teachers, teaching assistants and the Senior Leadership Team about the success of this additional support and the best step forward for the children in the year ahead.

The effectiveness of the interventions funded by Pupil Premium is looked at in detail and actions are drawn up to help accelerate progress. This cycle ensures that children receiving Pupil Premium are carefully monitored so that the funding can be effective.


Pupil premium priorities 2023-2024

Pupil premium funding received by Greenfield for the academic year 2023-2024 is £288,360. For analysis on how this amount will be spent please view the pupil premium report below.

At Greenfield, the priorities for our Pupil Premium spending are targeted interventions focusing on those curriculum objectives that pupils in receipt of the funding need to work on next; providing subsidised or free-of-charge school visits and residentials and supporting with learning outside the curriculum.

We have found that these three areas help to remove the main barriers to educational achievement faced by our pupils who receive the funding.


Recovery premium

The recovery premium grant is part of the government’s package of funding to support pupils whose education has been impacted by coronavirus (COVID-19).

It is a time-limited grant providing over £300m of additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year and £1bn across the 2022 to 2023 and 2023 to 2024 academic years.

It is focused on pupil premium eligible pupils and pupils in specialist settings such as special schools, special units and pupil referral units (PRUs). This is because of the additional impact of the pandemic on these students.

However, schools can use it to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting any pupil based on an assessment of individual need.

Greenfield E-ACT Academy has been allocated £30,740 worth of funding for the academic year 2022-2023 so the recovery premium plan therefore reports on how we will use the £30,740 provided to support our pupils.
