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.
- All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving pupils 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.
The respective children's progress and attainment is tracked and monitored carefully to ensure they achieve their full potential.
