Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Strategy Statement

Principles

The additional funding has been allocated to the school and we are determined to ensure that it has maximum impact. Careful analysis of internal and external pupil-level data, historical attainment and progress rate was undertaken to ensure that these funds are used to maximum effect.

 

The Pupil Premium funding that is received by school annually is used in a variety of ways in order to improve pupil attainment and help overcome barriers to learning. We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of the socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed. In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all our pupils who receive Free School meals (FSM) will be socially disadvantaged. We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered, or qualify, for FSM. We therefore allocate the Pupil Premium Funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
