Pupil Premium

 

In 2011 -2012 the Government introduced the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the main school funding. The pupil premium is intended to address the current underlying equalities between the children who are or who have been eligible for free school meals ( FSM and Ever 6) Looked after children ( LAC) , children whose parents are in the armed forces and their peers by ensuring that there is funding to reduce any disadvantages these pupils may have.  Pupil Premium Strategy review meetings are held annually .

 

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and they decide how the Pupil Premium is spent. Schools are held to account for how they spend the Pupil premium to support pupils who receive this extra funding.

 

Here at Chapel Break infant school the children are at the centre of everything we do.  Our mission is; we are an inclusive school and seek to enable all children to participate in the curriculum and life of the school. Access to high quality learning is seen as a life long entitlement regardless of gender, ethnic background, age or ability.

 

With this in mind we focus on vulnerable groups and consider very carefully how and what resources and initiatives can enhance every individuals’ achievement.

 

When we are presented with new initiatives or ideas nationally, locally or in house our first question is how will it improve outcomes for our children?  A process of research and rigorous monitoring follows to ensure that the ideas and initiatives really do have an impact.

 

If you are in receipt of certain benefits; you may be eligible for free school meals.  Although this will not give parets / carers additional money;  school will receive additional funding to spend on teaching and learning.  If you are in receipt of benefits or are on a low income; please complete the attached form and return to school as soons as possible.
