The aim of Pupil Premium is to reduce the achievement gap for disadvantaged children in England by implementing the most effective educational interventions to address these barriers within the school.
Our school has received funding to target pupils who are eligible for or who have been eligible for Free School Meals within the last 6 years and/or have been looked after. These pupils will receive additional support and access to extra-curricular activities and programs as required.
Pupil Premium funding provides an opportunity to review existing approaches to see if they are effective and to look at new or innovative means of improving standards for all.
We ensure that teaching and learning meets the needs of all the pupils
We ensure that appropriate provision in made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive FSM will be socially disadvantaged
We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify FSM. We reserve the right to allocate the pupil premium funding to support any pupils or groups of pupils the school have legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged
PP funding will be allocated on a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups and individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving pupil premium will be targeted with interventions at one time
Pupil premium resources may be used to accelerate progress and close attainment gap and/or to target able children on FSM to reach or exceed expected standards
Pupil Premium allocation can also be used for supporting families which impacts on the well-being of the child e.g. school trips, uniform
The Governors of the school will publish information on how the school used pupil premium grant to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’ for socially disadvantaged pupils
