PUPIL PREMIUM 2014-2015

The Government is targeting the pupil premium at pupils from deprived backgrounds in order to support them in reaching their potential and boost their attainment. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium in the ways they deem most appropriate. However, the school will be held responsible for how they use this funding to support children from low income families and Looked After Children.

Schools must publish on line information about how they have used the spending.

 

School Rationale for Spending of Pupil Premium

Across the school our experience shows that focusing on providing excellent teaching and support tailored to the needs of the individual pupil is likely to have the most impact in raising pupils’ aspiration and achievement.

We use our regular assessments to identify and target pupils in need of specific interventions to accelerate their progress; personal, social, emotional, physical and academic.

Most Pupil Premium grant is aimed at providing extra tuition, support and out of school activities.
