Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is an amount of money received to enable Cawston Grange to ensure that all children have an equal chance to succeed and fulfil their potential. The Pupil Premium funding is decided by:

  • The number of children who are registered for Free School Meals

  • The number of children who are classed as “looked after children”

  • The number of children from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

The Pupil Premium is used to support these children within school, regardless of their academic ability.

Pupil Premium in the current academic year 2016-17

This year, there are currently 47 children eligible for the Pupil Premium.

How is the money spent?

Two support teachers are employed to accelerate rapid and sustained progress in the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics, working across all year groups in collaboration with class teachers.

A Learning Mentor & Learning Assistants are employed to support pupils in and out of the classroom to build self-esteem, readiness for learning and as a result, to improve learning progress.

Extra English resources have been purchased to enable targeted support for identified gaps in learning.
