Pupil Premium at Peatmoor Community Primary School

Principles

At Peatmoor Community Primary School:

  • 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 socially disadvantaged pupils 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 socially disadvantaged.
  • Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.

Provision

The range of provision the school may consider include:

  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning
  • 1:1 support
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through trained teaching assistants or external agencies
  • Acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards, particularly in reading and mathematics.
  • Arranging out of school projects to provide small group stimuli to increase confidence and therfore raise standards, particularly in reading and mathematics.

Pupil premium resources will also be used to target able children on Free School Meals to achieve Age Related Expectations at the end of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Where appropriate funding will be used to offer direct financial support to families to buy resources / services at school.  This will include opportunities to access wrap around care at subsidised costs.
