Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6’), previously looked after or looked after children, and children of service personnel.
It is important to our successful partnership to get to know our children and families very well. We are keen to work with you to:
- Ensure that meeting the basic needs of your child is a priority, including having a sense of security;
- Ensure that a broad curriculum with many opportunities results in your child achieving well;
- Ensure that high expectations and excellent quality teaching are the norm;
- Use assessment and data information positively to ensure interventions are targeted towards specific children and are effective.
We publish online information about how we have used the Pupil Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by Pupil Premium and the extra support that they receive.
At the end of each financial year we review the impact of the funding as we plan to use the following year’s grant. We also review the impact of how we allocated our Pupil Premium funding at the end of the academic year to consider the impact on outcomes and in particular the difference in achievement between those eligible and those that were not. This ensures it represents both value for money and has played a direct role in helping pupils to reach their full potential, both academically and socially.
