Pupil Premium and Recovery Funding

 

Our intention is that all pupils, irrespective of their background or the challenges they face, make good progress and achieve high attainment across all subject areas. The focus of our pupil premium strategy is to support children who are eligible for pupil premium to achieve that goal, including progress for those who are already high attainers.  

We will consider the challenges and individual barriers faced by vulnerable pupils, such as those who have a social worker and young carers. The activity we have outlined in this statement is also intended to support their needs, regardless of whether they are disadvantaged or not. 

High-quality teaching is at the heart of our approach at Windale Primary School. This is proven to have the greatest impact on closing the disadvantage attainment gap and at the same time will benefit children who are not eligible for pupil – premium in our school. Implicit in the intended outcomes detailed below, is the intention that non-disadvantaged pupils’ attainment will be sustained and improved alongside progress for their disadvantaged peers. 

Our strategy is also integral to wider school plans for education recovery, for pupils whose education has been worst affected, including non-disadvantaged pupils and incorporates a focus on intervention and well-being as well.     

Our approach will be responsive to common challenges and individual needs, rooted in robust diagnostic assessment, not assumptions about the impact of disadvantage. The approaches we have adopted complement each other to help pupils excel. To ensure they are effective we will: 

  • ensure disadvantaged pupils are challenged in the work that they’re set 

  • act early to intervene at the point need is identified 

  • adopt a whole school approach in which all staff take responsibility for disadvantaged pupils’ outcomes and raise expectations of what they can achieve
