Pupil Premium Funding is money allocated to schools by government for the specific purpose of supporting children aged between 5 and 16 years from disadvantaged backgrounds, to ensure they have equal access to educational opportunity and improve achievement.
The Pupil Premium grant is given to pupils who have registered for free school meals in the last 6 years (FSM6), or are Looked After Children ( LAC ).This money is additional to the main school budget.
Each school has the freedom to decide how to spend the money to maximize the impact on pupil progress and attainment. At Yeoman Park School we do this in an individual and targeted way, raising the attainment of this group of children, ‘closing the gap’ in achievement.
At Yeoman Park School we have decided to target 4 main areas;
Providing opportunities for pupils to generalise their skills in social situations.
Developing communication skills – listening and speaking and understanding.
Occupational Therapy, providing support and strategies to enhance pupil development.
Providing Maths, Reading and Writing ‘Focused Learning’ opportunities individually or in groups.

Year 7 Catch Up Funding
The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2). All state-funded schools with year 7 pupils receive this funding, including special schools.
