Pupil Premium

At Nunthorpe Primary Academy, we have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that it is not about your background but your passion and thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure, and we are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential. Pupil premium and recovery premium funding for 2023/24 is £57,318; the strategy outlines how we will ensure it is spent to maximum effect.

Additional funding is used superbly well to ensure that pupils who are disadvantaged make equally excellent progress and any differences diminish swiftly.” – Ofsted.

Pupil Premium Spending

Our pupil premium grant has been used to provide a range of additional support for our children and these interventions have had a positive impact on children’s attainment.
Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to narrow the gap between pupil groups. As a school we have a good track record of ensuring that pupils make good progress regardless of their socio-economic background.
Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. Children who start school with low attainment on entry are selected to receive targeted support through a range of evidence-based interventions and strategies to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age-related expectations and as they move through the school.
Targeted support is being provided through one-to-one and small group tuition in all year groups and additional support is targeted at classes with a significant percentage of pupils entitled to Pupil Premium Grant.
Developing parental engagement is of continuing importance; the PPG leader works with families to ensure that their children do not miss out on extra-curricular opportunities.
Please have a look at our PPG Strategy Statement below for more information of how we identify areas of need and provide additional support for our disadvantaged families.

Early Years Pupil Premium Funding

Since April 2015, schools, nurseries, childminders and other childcare providers have been eligible to claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) to support children’s development, learning and care. The EYPP provides Nunthorpe Primary Academy with additional funding to close the achievement gap. It offers funding for three and four-year-old children whose parents receive specific benefits or if children have a history of being in care or adopted from care.

Research and data indicate that children eligible for free school meals generally perform less well academically, however, high-quality early education can positively influence a child’s performance. You may already be familiar with the Pupil Premium funding available for school-age children, which has proven to be beneficial, and we aim to provide a similar boost to our early years’ children entitled to this funding. The extra funding can make a significant difference to both us and your child. We again have the freedom to utilise the additional funds to enhance the quality of early years education, such as providing additional training for our staff in early language development, establishing partnerships with colleagues to expand our expertise, or supporting our staff in specialised areas like speech and language.

If your child is attending our nursery, we kindly request that you complete a form during enrolment which can be obtained from the school office. This will enable us to claim the additional EYPP for your child if they are eligible.

Recovery Premium Funding

In February 2021, the government announced a specific recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery to mitigate the effects of the Covid19 pandemic.

The recovery premium provided additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021/22, 2022/23 and 2023/24 academic years. The details of how schools allocate their Recovery Premium Funding are included within this year’s Pupil Premium Statement.
