Pupil Premium Funding (meeting the educational needs of disadvantaged children)
The aim of the Government Pupil Premium (PP) is to raise achievement among pupils in the following categories who receive or are entitled to Free School Meals, children in care (Looked After Children) and children with parents in the Armed Forces.
The funding is used to enable an education which will increase life choices for children who fall into one of the three categories above, enabling them to have more choices in further education and later careers. Children will be supported to attain and progress well, reducing any gap between high and low income families.
We have a range of strategies and programmes to support all our children with additional strategies for children identified as being in receipt of the “pupil premium” when they are needed.
The impact of PP Funding is reviewed each term, led by the Assistant Head Teacher for Inclusion, Louise Burrows.
Governing Body - Our PP Governor (Tonya Tynan) reports to the Governing Body.
Pupils - Evaluation discussions/viewpoint questionnaires are set as appropriate.
Parents - Parents informed of progress via Parent Teacher meetings and through the end of year reports.
Staff - PP children are discussed during Pupil Progress Meetings and performance management reviews.
The PP Coordinator (Louise Burrows) reports to Governors each term (see below, together with our PP Policy) how PP monies have been spent and the impact of actions taken. For more information on PP, please see the link below.
