Pupil Premium Philosophy

We use pupil premium in a variety of ways to provide additional staffing, experiences and equipment to our school – both inside and outside the curriculum.  By broadening the horizons of children from our lowest income groups, we aim to give them experiences that other children take for granted.

As every child has different needs and interests, the intervention strategies we use focus on motivation, achievement and positive experiences.  We have considered research on effective interventions conducted by the Sutton Trust which shows that some of the most effective interventions focus upon strong relationships with pupils, different types of learning, and giving feedback. We have also taken into account other areas of research, such as those which show that early years interventions and parental involvement are very valuable in accelerating progress by 3 – 6 months.

We expect the cumulative effect of all our interventions to follow our children throughout their entire school careers.
