What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is government money designed to help disadvantaged children and young people do well at school. The funding is allocated to schools for children from Reception to Year 11 who have registered for free school meals in the last six years, are in care or have parents in the Armed Forces.

What are the key barriers to educational achievement faced by PP students at Woodrush?
We believe that there are five key barriers to achievement for our PP students:      
We believe that there are five key barriers to achievement for our PP students:
  • Teaching, Learning and Assessment – Ensuring all students have a consistently high standard of education
  • Attitudes to Learning – To ensure all students are prepared and have a consistently high attitude and expectation towards their learning
  • Literacy and Numeracy Skills – To ensure all students are numerate and literate for life beyond Woodrush
  • Attendance and punctuality – To ensure there is no gap in attendance for all our learners
  • Parental Engagement – To ensure parents are involved in the learning of their child and support the school in ensuring high aspirations for all learners
We have therefore principally directed our funding into strategies to address these barriers, as well as to ensure that our students are well prepared for life after Woodrush.
