Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to close the gap between FSM and Non FSM groups. We aim to provide an excellent education through high quality teaching. This is supplemented by targeted interventions for pupils who might otherwise not make a good level of progress. We are committed to enabling all children to achieve their potential, regardless for their gender, ethnic origin or family income or circumstances.
A Ryders Green Primary School, the main ways Pupil Premium is to be used is to provide the following:
At the end of the academic year, we review how effective the above measures have been in enabling pupils to fulfil their potential. All members of staff, governors and teaching assistants accept responsibility for ‘socially disadvantaged’ pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within the school environment.
Ryders Green is committed to ‘Closing the Gap’ between vulnerable pupils and the pupil premium forms a vital part of that process. The governors reserve the right to allocate the pupil premium funding to support any pupils or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged. Provision will be made through:
It is the responsibility of the governors to explain pupil premium expenditure to parents in the form of an annual statement. There is no set format for the report of pupil premium. Ryders Green Primary School will publish details of a report online annually. This report aims to detail information on how Pupil Premium has been used within school and the impact this has made in terms of the attainment and progress of the children. Regular reports will be presented on the progress of pupils supported by Pupil Premium.
Parents will be able to obtain information on the pupil premium via the schools website. This will be updated annually.
The responsibility for the report will be allocated to the Head teacher. Leaders will be asked to report on the intervention in place for key pupils and the impact that intervention has had.
If you have any questions, or would like to know more about Pupil Premium funding, please speak to the Head teacher. If you think your child may be eligible for Free School Meals, (even if s/he may not wish to eat them!), please ask at the school office for more information and a claim form.
