All Can Achieve

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Information

Pupil Premium is the term used to describe funding to the school which is based on the number of pupils on roll who have been registered for free school meals over the last 6 years or children who have been in care for more than 6 months - Looked After Children (LAC).


The range of provision the Governors may consider include:


  • Reducing class sizes thus improving opportunities for effective assessment for learning and accelerating progress
  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning
  • 1 to 1 support
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through learning mentors, trained Teaching Assistants or external agencies
  • Providing enrichment opportunities to improve engagement
  • Family support


All our work through Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress to move children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in Literacy and Numeracy.


Pupil Premium resources may also be used to target more able children on free school meals to achieve the greater depth standards.


The Governors publish information on how they have used their Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of "closing the gap" for socially disadvantaged pupils and this is available below.
