“Believe to Achieve”

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools for supporting more disadvantaged pupils to ensure that they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children.

There are three categories of children that qualify for Pupil Premium:

  • Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • Looked after children
  • Armed forces children

The school has a small proportion of children who are eligible for Pupil Premium.

The additional support includes one or more of the following:

  • Intervention programmes identified and organised by the Inclusion Manger, for example, spelling or reading programmes, social skills or friendship groups or one to one tuition.
  • Teaching Assistant support in class for whole class, smallgroup and individual support, focused on overcoming gaps in learning.
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through trained Teaching Assistants or external agencies. This includes interventions such as social skills group work with our Emotional Literacy Support Advisers.
  • Parent Support Adviser involvement.
  • Targeting of able children on Free School Meals to achieve Level 3 at the end of KS1 or Level 5+ at the end of KS2.
  • Training for staff who carry out targeted interventions with pupils so that they are effective in accelerating pupils progress in reading, writing and mathematics.
  • Family learning events.

The respective children's progress and attainment is tracked and monitored carefully to ensure they achieve their full potential.

 

Pupil Premium Grant Report 2016 - 2017 Academic Year

Principles

  • All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations.
  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils
  • We place great importance on the health and well-being of our pupils
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who are disadvantaged learners, 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 free school meals or come from service families 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 support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
