It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
Pupil Premium at Somers Park Primary School
At Somers Park Primary School, we are committed to diminishing the difference in performance between children eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant and their peers. We have high aspirations, and value the abilities and achievements, of all our children; we are committed to providing each pupil with the best possible environment for learning and ensure they are given every chance to realise their full potential. We recognise that each child is unique and will have different needs, which may well vary throughout their time in school. Our strategy focuses very much on their individual needs.
Pupil Premium Spending
Our pupil premium money is used to provide a range of additional support for our children and these interventions, along with quality first teaching have a positive impact on children’s attainment and self-belief.
Through targeted interventions we work hard to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. One of the schools aims is to ensure that ALL groups of pupils make good progress in order to reach age related expectations as they move through the school.
Targeted support is being provided through one-to-one and small group tuition.
How will school measure the impact of Pupil Premium funding?
