At our school we work hard to meet the individual needs of each child and to personalise their learning as much as possible. This includes giving extra sessions when children need them or extra challenge when they are ready. This teaching approach is a normal part of our school’s teaching and learning.
Pupil premium is additional funding that can help us to resource some of these strategies. All schools can decide how they spend pupil Premium, since they are best placed to assess and address what additional support should be made for pupils within their school. There are four categories of primary aged children that qualify for pupil premium:
- Pupils in reception to year 6 recorded as ‘ever 6 free school meals (FSM)’
- Looked after children (LAC)
- Pupils recorded as ‘ever 5 service’ children, or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence
