Pupil Premium at Friars.
At Friars we are firmly committed to ensuring that all children regardless of their background are entitled to meet their full potential both academically and pastorally. All schools receive an amount of money on an annual basis direct from the Government known as the Pupil Premium.

Impact of the 2019/20 year’s expenditure:
Please click on the link below to see an evaluation of the 2019/20 action plan. Please note that due to school closures as a result of Covid-19 much of the provision cannot be fully evaluated and will carry into the 2020/21 academic year. As there were no published outcomes at any stage and summative teacher assessments did not go beyond the spring term, the usual metrics to aid evaluation are unavailable.
Funding received for the current year:
The amount received for 2020/21 is £90,115 (pupil premium level per pupil is £1345)
Summary of the main barriers to achievement faced by eligible pupils:
- Closing the academic gaps that have emerged during lockdown and school closures across the whole school
- Attaining across the curriculum at the same level as other pupils (specifically upper KS2 in 2020/21)
- Making the same or better progress than other pupils across the curriculum (specifically upper KS2 in 2020/21)
- Social, moral, spiritual and cultural development being hindered because of lack of opportunity
- Emotional wellbeing and development of resilience, paying particular attention to the experiences PP children had during lockdown.
