Objectives in spending PPG:

To improve attainment and progress, and to close the gap between pupils receiving pupil premium funding and pupils who are not receiving it.

Barriers to Learning:

Large number of pupils not attending school since March 2020 due to school clousres; deprivation of language and vocabulary development; limited emotional resilience and self-esteem; English as an additional language; neglect and abuse; low attendance and poor punctuality; lack of access to a good morning routine and a healthy breakfast; poor evening and bedtime routines, leading to lack of sleep; high mobility
