Pupil Premium & Catch Up Funding

Principles for the use of funding agreed by the Governing Body:

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our children.

  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged children are adequately assessed and addressed.

  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged children, we recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged. We also recognise that not all children 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 child or group of children the federation has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

  • Pupil Premium Funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of Pupil Premium interventions at one time.
