The Pupil Premium is a government initiative designed to target resources on those pupils deemed to be from a disadvantaged background. Specifically the Pupil Premium money is provided for those pupils who have been on Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (Ever 6) or those children who have been looked after continuously for at least 6 months (CLA).
Pupil Premium money comes into school for CLA (Children Looked After) and FSM (Free School Meals).
The core principles upon which we have utilised the Pupil Premium Grant are:
- To ensure the continued improvement of Quality First Teaching with a particular focus on marking and feedback.
- To track, monitor and intervene effectively so that we support attendance, engagement in learning and progress.
- To provide tailored curriculum approaches for students in line with our inclusive philosophy.
- To provide for the needs of disadvantaged students ranging from physical materials to emotional support.
