The Pupil Premium Grant at Claycots School Partnership
The Pupil Premium Grant is funding given to our school by the Government to help support children. If any of the following applies to your child, please contact the school office for help to apply:
· Does your child have free school meals or has your child had free school meals in the last 6 years?
· Is either parent a member of the armed forces?
· Is your child looked after by the local authority, have they been adopted or have an SGO or CAO?
The Pupil Premium Strategy will be reviewed regularly throughout the year and adjusted to ensure the maximum benefit in children’s outcomes.
Principles of the Pupil Premium Spend:
The principles for spending the Pupil Premium Strategy link to our core LIVE values
We recognise that not all pupils who are eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant will be underachieving, whilst some pupils who are not eligible may be. It is school policy to assess, plan and provide support and interventions for any individual or groups of pupils where underachievement may be found. Some pupils who are eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant who are not underachieving academically may well be targeted for support to enhance their future aspirations, leadership skills and non-academic life experiences.
There are three main areas of expenditure for the Pupil Premium grant in 2018/19:
1. Quality First Teaching Support
2. Social, Emotional and Wellbeing Support
3. Experiential learning.
These three areas link to the identified barriers to learning. Please see the Pupil Premium Strategy document 2018/19 for full details of this and how the impact is assessed.
Financial Hardship and Trips/Workshops/Residentials
We have found that going on a trip or residential visit or having special visitors to school can bring learning to life for the children and improve their vocabulary, writing, social skills or leadership skills.
