The Pupil Premium is additional funding paid to schools in respect of their disadvantaged pupils (pupils who have been registered for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years or are looked after continuously by the local authority for more than six months). Schools recieve this funding to support their eligible pupils and narrow the attainment gap between them and their peers.
Schools, Headteachers and Teachers will decide how to use the Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils. DFE Website
Our Pupil Premium students account for approximately 20% of our whole school cohort and through a personalised and focused approach to Pupil Premium, it is our intention to ensure that our pupils not only benefit from support in raising their achievement, but are also provided opportunities that can be life changing. Here at Shavington, we recognise the importance of raising pupil achievement and these stratagies are mapped, according to pupil need, which is identified from data captures that occur within school. We also feel passionate that this funding has the potential to provide students with opportunities to widen their life experiences, which have a personal and profound impact. These stratagies are also very personalised, like our achievement approaches and working with parents, we hope to engage pupils in the stratagies that will make the difference for them.
Below is an indication of the range of approaches being used to support our pupils; if you wish to discuss any issues regarding Pupil Premium, please contact our Deputy Headteacher Miss E.J Morris: email@example.com
