Pupil Premium Report to Parents

Principles

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the 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 reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

  • Reducing class sizes through additional teacher support, thus improving opportunities for effective AfL and accelerating progress
  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through trained teachers, TAs or external agencies
  • 1 to 1 support
  • Work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in Literacy and Numeracy
