Pupil premium is a term to describe the additional funding that the school receives in order to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
The impact of pupil premium is measured and reviewed throughout the year and evaluated at the end of the year. Regular checks are carried out to ensure the actions stated in the expenditure have been allocated well and are having the impact required.
These checks involve monitoring progress of pupil premium children through:
- Lesson observations and Learning walks
- Book scrutinies
- Discussions with pupils
- Involvement through extra enrichment sessions
- Attendance records
- Pupil progress meetings
- Data tracking
- Updating audits.
