We want our children to become independent, confident, self-motivated and enthusiastic learners, having the self-esteem to both evaluate and extend their learning to achieve their full potential, within a secure, caring, happy environment.
- We aim to ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of
all the pupils.
- We aim to ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
- In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
- We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being social disadvantaged. .
- Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources mean that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at any one time.
Provision: Addressing Barriers to Learning
All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age-related expectations and/or the vast majority of eligible children achieving their individual targets set at beginning of each academic year.
Pupil premium resources may therefore also be used to support eligible higher achieving children to work at greater depth within age-related expectations.
Date of next school review of Pupil Premium strategy: July 2024
