Pupil premium is a payment of £1320 per child, which is awarded to those families whose income is less than £16,900 annually or who receive certain benefits. The money is designed to narrow the gap (Ofsted 2014) or provide ways in which a school can support those children in catching up (Ofsted 2016) with their peers. However it must be remembered that not all pupil Premium children are behind their peers and that some are on track and in front!
Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium is to narrow the gap between pupil groups; not just in school but, between those children who receive pupil premium and those who do not (others nationally).
We can do this through targeted interventions and working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. Many children start school with low attainment on entry and our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age related expectations as they move through the school.
Belvoirdale also recognises the emotionally and social needs of those children who come from deprived backgrounds. To that end, we also use the pupil premium grant to provide mental health and emotional support services as well as providing cultural experiences through the arts such as music lesson and visits to other institutions such as theatres and galleries.
