Pupil Premium Reporting to Parents
We are committed to improving opportunities for personalised learning and accelerating progress for vulnerable pupils in our school.
At Midsomer Norton Primary School:
- We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all 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. As a school we are committed to catering for the needs of all, regardless of whether they qualify for additional funding.
- Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources mean that different children receiving free school meals will receive their Pupil Premium interventions at different points in the year.
- All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress, enabling children to progress at least in line with age-related expectations.
- Pupil Premium resources may also be used to support able children on FSM working at a greater depth within the expected standard at the end of KS1 and KS2.
- The school will publish information on how they have used their Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for socially disadvantaged pupils.
PPG is used to part fund key interventions and opportunities for vulnerable children and priority is given to children eligible for PPG.
The interventions and strategies funded are based on the evidence of effective interventions provided by the Education Endowment Foundation and the school's own internal tracking data.
The use of pupil premium funding is regularly reviewed for its effectiveness by school governors.
