Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

All members of staff, governors and teaching assistants accept responsibility for ‘socially disadvantaged’ pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within the school environment.

The Pupil Premium Champion is Miss Grace McConnell she is supported by Mrs Tracey Kilcoyne, our safeguarding governor.

North Scarle Primary School is committed to ‘Closing the Gap’ between vulnerable pupils and their peers. The Pupil Premium forms an important part of this strategy plan.

Provision will be made through:

  • Supporting pupils’ access to education
  • Supporting pupils’ access to the curriculum
  • Development of cultural links to promote a sense of belonging in modern Britain and to ensure equal Cultural Capital for all childern
  • Identification and commitment to nurture and develop talents
  • Alternative support and intervention where appropriate within the school environment

Core Principles

  • 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

Please see below our strategy for Pupil Premium funding for 2019/20 and how the pupil premium funding has been spent and the impact it had for 2018/19.
