OVERVIEW

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is a sum of money allocated to schools to close the attainment gap between those eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers. The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

OBJECTIVES FOR PUPIL PREMIUM IN THIS SCHOOL

The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils.
The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers
We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it makes a significant impact on their education and lives.

ACCOUNTABILITY

The Head teacher and leadership team will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies we have put into place for Pupil Premium and report to the IEB on its progress and impact.

STRATEGY FOR USING THE FUNDING

Shalford Primary School has identified the needs of those pupils receiving pupil premium funding and we have decided to use the following intervention strategies:

Providing small group intervention for pupils entitled to Pupil Premium focussed on overcoming gaps in learning to help them make improved progress and to raise their standards of achievement.
1:1 targeted intervention for pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding to help them make improved progress and to raise their standards of achievement.
Additional teaching and learning opportunities for pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding provided through the Head Teacher, SENCo, Pupil support Manager, trained LSAs and external agencies.

All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving pupils entitled to Pupil Premium funding to at least age related expectations in reading, writing and maths.
