What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Aims of the Pupil Premium
At Watlington Primary School, we aim to spend our Pupil Premium funding in the most effective ways. We consider both the academic and social needs of the children in our care. We target the funding well from the outset, being responsive and flexible to individual needs and use progress and tracking procedures to identify the strengths and weaknesses of individual pupils. Effective intervention strategies are used in order to close gaps in the attainment of disadvantaged pupils, particularly within English and maths. These strategies are routinely evaluated and analysed, as is the impact upon pupil attainment.
