Pupil Premium Policy
The school uses the income from Pupil Premium to “Light a Spark in Every Child” and endeavour to ensure any child who meets the criteria for the funding allocated to the school is given targeted and strategic support to learn as effectively as possible.
- We ensure teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the children
- We ensure appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups
- In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils we recognise that not all children who receive Free School Meals (FSM) will be socially disadvantaged
- We also recognise that not all children who are socially disadvantaged are registered to qualify for FSM.
- Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a learning needs analysis which will identify priority support which could be group or individually based.
What are our aims and objectives on spending the pupil premium?
Our school ethos ‘Lighting a spark in every child’ really values and highlights inclusion of all children and underpins everything we do.
Our PPG is spent in line with our pupil premium policy to support the progress and learning of identified pupils.
The aim is to reduce the gap in achievement between disadvantaged children and others at the school.
We recognise that pupils may be subject to multiple disadvantages and that reasons for lack of progress or attainment, involve a range of factors, some of which are not easily affected by in-school actions.
Our aim of closing the gap can only be achieved where actions result in pupil premium children being more involved in the school community as well as having additional learning support as necessary.
Pupil premium money will also be spent on actions to impact on pupil’s social, emotional and well-being so children are ready to learn.
How do we identify pupils at our school?
We are committed to ensuring that the provision we make secures teaching and learning opportunities to meet the needs of all pupils and that the needs of pupils who are considered to be vulnerable or socially disadvantaged are adequately assessed and addressed as part of the additional provision we make through the Pupil Premium.
In making provision, we recognise that not all pupils who receive the PPG will be socially
disadvantaged and not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for PPG.
At our school Pupil Premium funding is allocated for individuals for one to one support or within a group of pupils identified as: FSM and Ever 6 children, LAC children, Service children and children having been identified as socially disadvantaged / subject to child protection plans, or identified as vulnerable as learners.
How do we know we are using the Pupil Premium effectively?
The progress and attainment of all pupils and groups of pupils is monitored closely through the schools pupil assessment and tracking systems.
Pupil progress review meetings are held each term.
During the tracking and review meetings, individual children’s attainment is monitored and reviewed. Interventions and support are adjusted annually to meet the needs of the pupils across the school.
