Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools for supporting children who are at a greater risk of under-achievement.
We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils
We ensure that children belonging to vulnerable groups, including those from socially disadvantaged backgrounds, are adequately assessed and provision is made to meet their needs
In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free schools meals will be socially disadvantaged
We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged will be in receipt of free school meals. We therefore reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any groups of pupils that the school deems to be socially disadvantaged
Our PPG provision is carefully planned in order to elicit high outcomes for disadvantaged children and to narrow any attainment gaps between contrasting groups.
With this in mind, activities and support are designed after reflection on our own practice and in response to various research projects, an example being the Education Endowment Foundation.
This has determined which types of intervention have been proven to have the most impact on children’s progress and attainment.
