The Pupil Premium is used to ensure that all pupils reach their potential, and at least the national expectations in English and Maths, regardless of their social situation.
Pupil Premium resources may also be used to target able children on FSM to achieve Greater Depth (GDS) at the end of KS1 and KS2.
This is achieved through using the premium to pay for a designated teacher and skilled teaching assistants who are trained to deliver quality intervention programmes aimed at helping children to catch up to the expected standards for their age and for essential resources and training.
It is also used for whole school staff training for intervention and teacher release time to provide targeted assessment, diagnosis and classroom support.
- We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our 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
- We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals
- We recognise that our children from service families may need additional support for transition and in some cases to catch up to nationally expected standards
Pupil Premium funding will be allocated using our provision map which will identify priority groups or individuals.
Our map is developed through whole school monitoring of data and assessments and in discussion with class teachers.
Children who are deemed to be at risk of underachieving are flagged up and interventions put in place. These are monitored every half term.
