Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
The Pupil Premium grant was introduced by the government to enable schools to target specific funding towards children whose circumstances are likely to have an impact on their progress and attainment.
The grant is available for three groups of children
- Children from lower-income families who qualify for a Free School Meal (FSM).
- Children who are looked after (i.e., in the care of the Local Authority).
- Children of service personnel.
Our allowance of Pupil Premium funding is determined by the number of children we have who meet the criteria for any of the three groups above. Whilst the government does not determine how schools should spend the money to best meet the needs of individual children, it does require schools to state publicly how they have used the funds and to evaluate the impact of the additional spending on childrens attainment and progress.
At Warrender School
- We aim to ensure that every child makes good progress.
- We endeavour to make appropriate provision for all children who belong to vulnerable groups.
- We recognise that individual circumstances vary not all children who qualify for Pupil Premium funding are socially disadvantaged or at risk of low attainment and progress.
We acknowledge that every child is unique each child who is in receipt of Pupil Premium requires support that is tailored to identified needs.
