Pupil Premium Impact
We have high aspirations for all the children in our school community and believe that all children should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential. We seek, as a school community, to provide personalised and tailored learning opportunities and targeted support to allow every child to flourish.
As we recognise that not all pupils who are academically or socially disadvantaged are registered for free school meals, we reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil, or group of pupils, identified by the school as being at a significant disadvantage.
In order to meet the above requirements, the Governing Body of Shirehampton Primary School will ensure that provision is made which secures the teaching and learning opportunities that meet the needs of all pupils.
Our priorities at Shirehampton Primary School are:
- To narrow the gap for those pupils not on track to achieve the expected standard at the end of KS2.
- To ensure early identification of additional needs and to promote early intervention programmes.
- To ensure that there is extra adult support to facilitate emotional and social development.
- To use academic research and CPD (training) to make informed choices about the most suitable intervention programmes to use with our children to ensure we are promoting accelerated learning.
This provision will include:
- Facilitating pupils’ access to education.
- Facilitating pupils’ access to the curriculum.
- Additional teaching and learning opportunities.
- Alternative support and intervention, agreed alongside pupil’s parents, where funds are available after securing the school’s own programme.
- Provision of extra-curricular learning.
- Provision for more able pupils.
The effect has been very positive and has contributed to improved school life. More information relating to the Pupil Premium is available from the Department for Education website: Pupil Premium.
