The targeted and strategic use of pupil premium will support us in achieving our aim of
helping everyone achieve to their full potential. As a Federation, we do this by:
Firstly: assuring the best possible delivery of learning experiences in the classroom.
Secondly: we have a range of group and individual interventions designed to support those with identified needs.
Thirdly: we try to offer a rich and varied menu of activities designed to engage and motivate
pupils, raising their aspirations and creating a positive view of learning.
We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils.
We 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 (FSM) will be socially disadvantaged For the purpose of this policy FSM children will include past as well as current recipients.
We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged. Any group will be made up of FSM children and non FSM children, where their needs are similar, or where meeting their needs helps to for all.
Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at any one me.
