The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and is used by the school to help ‘close the gap’ in attainment. This is achieved by addressing any underlying inequalities between children and ensuring that funding benefits the pupils who need it most, so that there is a significant impact on their education and their lives. As a school we decide how the allocated pupil premium funding should be spent. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how it is being used.
At Great Easton Primary School:
- We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed.
- In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive pupil premium funding will be socially disadvantaged.
- We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We will allocate the pupil premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils in the school which have been identified as socially disadvantaged.
- Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources may mean that not all children in receipt of pupil premium will be receiving targeted activities at any one time.
This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.
