Pupil premium strategy statement

‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me…”

Our Pupil Premium Vision

At Calverley, our vision is to provide the very best opportunities for all our children, and especially those who require our support the most, and we want all children to be successful learners and confident individuals.  We aim to prepare all children for the next stage of their education and for their adult life.  We aim to provide disadvantaged children the same chances to succeed as their peers and diminish any differences in academic achievement and opportunity.

This statement details our school’s use of pupil premium (and recovery premium for the 2021 to 2022 academic year)  funding to help improve the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils.

It outlines our pupil premium strategy, how we intend to spend the funding in this academic year and the effect that last year’s spending of pupil premium had within our school.

Part B: Review of outcomes in the previous academic year

Pupil premium strategy outcomes

This details the impact that our pupil premium activity had on pupils in the 2020 to 2021 academic year.

Due to COVID-19, performance measures have not been published for 2020 to 2021, and 2020 to 2021 results will not be used to hold schools to account. Given this, please point to any other pupil evaluations undertaken during the 2020 to 2021 academic year, for example, standardised teacher administered tests or diagnostic assessments such as rubrics or scales.

If last year marked the end of a previous pupil premium strategy plan, what is your assessment of how successfully the intended outcomes of that plan were met?
