Central to the mission and vision of Queenswood Primary School is the aim of realising the potential of every single pupil to achieving their fullest potential. This means tackling and overcoming obstacles to achievement caused by material disadvantage and raising the attainment of those students in low-income families.
Targeted additional support strategies resulting in every pupil, however financially disadvantaged, being able to:
• improve their levels of attainment and achievement
• close or exceed attainment gaps relative to school averages and/or national averages
• have full access to our curriculum
• access our extra-curricular provision
Pupil Premium explained:
The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
Pupil Premium funding is a government grant that is given to schools to help them support those children that are the most disadvantaged.
Children are eligible for the pupil premium grant if they
are in receipt of free school meals due to low income or family are in receipt of benefits
has been in local authority care for 1 day or more
has been adopted from care
has left care under:
a special guardianship order
a residence order
a child arrangement order
In addition to this funding, schools will receive £300 for each pupil whose parents are Service Men or Women.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used, and the impact of any work completed
