Please find details of our most recent Ofsted Report below:
From September 2020 additional funds have been made available, in instalments, payable across the academic year to support ‘catch up’ and ‘recovery’ following the national lockdown and partial re-opening of schools.
The following strategy was based around guidance provided by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) which advocated spend around three key areas: teaching & whole school strategies; targeted intervention and support; wider strategies. This research document and guidance can be found here.

Covid Response Strategy
Pupil Premium is specific, additional funding that the government provides to schools to support the education of pupils who are eligible for free school meals, are looked after children or whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
The level of funding and the eligibility criteria change each financial year and the Department for Education has published details on its website here. Schools decide how to spend this money.
At Benton Park Primary School the Finance and Staffing Committee and Curriculum and Performance Committee have responsibility for making these decisions and monitoring their impact, alongside the Senior Leadership Team.
The report below explains how we plan to spend Pupil Premium funding and its intended impact:
