Pupil Premium

PUPIL PREMIUM 2018-19

WHAT IS PUPIL PREMIUM?

The government allocates additional money to schools, Pupil Premium funding, for children from low income families or Looked after children. Funding is allocated to children who have been entitled to free school meals (FSM) over the last six years.

This is allocated to raise the attainment of these children and close the attainment gap between these pupils and others at our school as well as ensuring that all qualifying pupils benefit from the funding.  We have utilised strategies from ‘Narrowing the Gap’ and The Sutton Trust EEF Toolkit, which has been researched an analysed extensively to inform us of the best ways to use this money.  

TOTAL NUMBERS OF CHILDREN ON ROLL:

Although numbers fluctuate during the year our October 2018 CENSUS indicated that there were 700 children of statutory age of whom 145 were identified as eligible for pupil premium.

Therefore approximately 21% of our school population qualifies for Pupil Premium.

  At Chorlton Park, we have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind.   We are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to achieve highly. Pupil premium funding, along with allocations made from the school’s own budget will help ensure this money is spent to maximum effect. 

We have analysed our barriers to learning and we see the most effective ways to support disadvantaged pupils’ achievement are:

·       to have a whole school ethos of attainment for all

·       to ensure high quality teaching

·       to meet children’s individual learning needs

·       to deploy staff effectively

·       to make good use of data and information to identify and evaluate

·       to have clear roles and responsive leadership.

·       to address behaviour and attendance concerns

At Chorlton Park we direct this funding towards:

Learning in the curriculum for all learners

Enrichment activities, including projects to raise the aspirations of learners

Families and Community

Social, emotional and behavioural issues
