What is Pupil Premium?
raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential
supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces
At Tanworth-In Arden we use our Pupil Premium funding to support academic interventions and resources, but we also acknowledge that the attainment and progress of children can be affected by a child's self-esteem and well-being. We therefore also use our Pupil Premium funding to support pastoral support, enrichment activities and to subsidise educational visits.
We continuously review our provision and the governors challenge our use of the funding to narrow the achievement gap. We measure the impact of the pupil premium spending by tracking each individual's progress and knowing the individual child's needs both academically and socially and emotionally. We have a designated member of staff who tracks the spend and the impact of the additional funding on each child.
In making provision for those children in receipt of PPG, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged. As a school we also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the PP funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
The document below indicates how we plan to spend the additional funding for 2020-2021. This will be reviewed in Summer 2021.
