Pupil Premium Statement September 2017

The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced by the Government in April 2011.  Schools were allocated funding for children who were eligible for free school meals, looked-after children (in public care) and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.  The Government believes that the PPG is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between these children and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Principles

  • We ensure that the teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils in the school.
  • We ensure that the appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, including 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 reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupils or groups of pupils the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify classes, groups or individuals.

Provision

The range of provision the Governors may consider include:

  • Providing reduced class sizes to improve the teacher to pupil ratio thus ensuring increased opportunities for high quality teaching.
  • Providing small group work from experienced teaching assistants focussed on narrowing the gaps in learning.
  • 1 – 1 support.
  • Acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics.

All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress and moving children to at least age related expectations.  The focus will be in Literacy and Numeracy.
