Pupil Premium

Principles
  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils that school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
The range of provision the Headteacher and Governors may consider include:
  • Providing small group work with an experienced Teacher or TA focussing on overcoming gaps in learning.
  • 1:1 support
  • All our work through pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations, initially this will be in literacy and numeracy.
  • Providing parents with access to professionals and outside agencies.
  • Pupil Premium resources may also be used to target able children on FSM to achieve level 3 at the end of KS1 and Level 5 at the end of KS2.
  • The Headteacher and Governors will publish information about how the school has used the Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of narrowing the gap for vulnerable children including FSM.
