Pupil Premium

Picture 1




  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils

  • We ensure that appropriate provision is 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 free school meals will be socially disadvantaged

  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.


  • Provision is currently in the following forms:


  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning

  • 1-1 support

  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities, trained TAs or external agencies

  • All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in Literacy and Numeracy

  • Pupil premium resources may also be used to target able children on FSM to achieve Greater Depth at the end of KS1 or KS2

  • The school will publish information on how they have used their Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for FSM pupils.
