Pupil Premium Grant

Adlington Primary School

Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

This is additional money given to the school, by the Government, for children in receipt of Free School Meals, Cared for Children and Children with parents who are in the Armed Forces.

  • 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 pupils in receipt of FSM are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil, or groups of pupils, the school has legitimately identified as being vulnerable. Any group, supported through Pupil Premium Grant, will be made up of at least one FSM pupil.
  • As we have very few pupils entitled to FSM the Pupil Premium Grant will be allocated following identification of priority groups or individuals
  • Not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium.

How do we spend our pupil premium?

We spend the money in various ways, including:

  • Professional development opportunities so that all our staff have the knowledge, understanding and skills to meet a wide range of learning needs and to be able to evaluate the effectiveness of any strategies used.
  • Reducing group sizes, thus improving opportunities for AFL and accelerating progress
  • Providing individual work with an experienced teaching assistant focussed on overcoming gaps in learning
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through boosters, small group support, one to one tuition or other agencies if required. All our work through Pupil Premium is aimed at accelerating progress to move children to at least age related expectations.
  • Pupil premium resources may be used to target able children on FSM to achieve level 3 (KS1) and level 5/6 (KS2)
