At Millfields Primary School and Nursery, we are extremely lucky to receive funding via Pupil Premium. For the financial year 2021-2022, 20% of our children are entitled to Pupil Premium Funding.
Every year we create a document titled Spending Overview and impact. Within this, we state our key priorities for our Pupil Premium children and the potential barriers, as well as detailing how the funding will be spent in relation to our key priorities.
At the end of each term, we carefully analyse what impact there has been, stating the achievements and adapting our actions and next steps. All of this is inputted into the spending overview.
At the bottom of this page, you can find the Spending Overview for the academic year 2020-2021, where we have fully analysed our progress against the key priorities and the impact the funding has had.
You can also find the overview for this academic year 2021-2022, which clearly states where we are planning to spend our funding in order to achieve these years Key Priorities.
