The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. The aim is to help pupils from low income families get the best start in life.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility
At Pokesdown we continually reflect on our provision and improve it in order to ensure the best outcomes for all children. We support all our pupils by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as and when required. This also includes opportunities to access LOTC activities, creative and expressive arts and meeting children’s social and emotional needs.
The School Leadership Team and Governing Body monitor the impact of all spending and interventions, including the Pupil Premium.
