Our school belives that everyone should have the right to a great education, with disadvantage being no obstacle to success. Children who come from lower income backgrounds are given a 'pupil premium' directly to their school, which is in addition to main school funding. By using this funding wisely we aim to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used. Once information is available, the impact of the funding should also be reported. The amounts received by Fremington Community Primary School have been:
2016-17 Financial Year £95,700.50
2015-16 Financial Year £98,496.07
2014-15 Financial Year £104,500
In the financial year 2016/2017, Pupil Premium funding of £95,700.50 is available. We have planned to spend this money to help raise attainment for disadvantaged pupils, in the following ways:
- All teaching in the school is good or better- training for staff
- Learning Support Assistants to support children with particular needs who had not been eligible for extra funding for special educational needs.
- THRIVE Groups (social and emotional wellbeing) which is “a comprehensive, whole-school approach to promoting the social and emotional skills that underpin effective learning, positive behaviour, regular attendance, staff effectiveness and the emotional health and well-being of all who learn and work in schools”.
- Maths Interventions
- Reading Interventions
- Literacy Interventions
- SALT Interventions (Speech & Language Therapy)
- Swimming Interventions
- Support disadvantaged families in terms of educational visits
- Early morning Fun-Fit
- Emergency food provision
