What is Pupil Premium?
The Government has started a scheme named Pupil Premium. This Pupil Premium is allocated to local authorities and schools with pupils on roll in January 2012 that are known to have been eligible for free school meals at any time in the last six years, also children who have been Looked After for more then 6 months and those children who are from Service families. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their wealthier peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
Here at Coddington
There are currently 62 children entitled to the pupil premium provision. This is accessed via a rotational basis, meaning that each child has chance to access the provision for 3 out of 6 half terms.
Pupil’s progress is closely tracked and monitored to ensure that the next stages of learning are catered for. A suitable intervention, consolidation work or next steps to learning program is then put in place. Once the individual pupil has met the age related or above target they should be able to access their learning at a much better rate.
