Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement.
The Pupil Premium Grant allocation schools receive is based on the number of children eligible for free school meals (either currently or at any point in the last six years) at the time of the annual census.
A service premium is also available to support children whose parents are currently, or have recently been, serving in the armed forces. The service premium is designed to provide additional, mainly pastoral, support for these children to ensure their social and emotional well being.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.
The Governing Body of Woore Primary and Nursey School have decided that this grant will be most effectively spent on supporting children’s learning in the classroom by providing high quality first teaching, curriculum support, targeted intervention, engagement and enrichment activities and access to before and after school clubs.
As with all children at Woore, to ensure maximum impact the needs of children entitled to the Pupil Premium are clearly identified, steps are taken to meet their individual needs and their progress is closely monitored through school. Where small group / 1:1 support is felt to be most beneficial Pupil Premium will be used to support this provision.
Teaching and learning at Woore is designed to meet the individual needs of all children.
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.
- We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged have free school meals.
- We will allocate Pupil Premium funding after a needs analysis to identify priority groups and individuals.
To see how the money has been spent in the past and how we propose to spend it in the current academic year, please see the attached reports.
