As a school, we are committed to providing the conditions and opportunities to enable our pupils to realise their full potential in all aspects of school life. We recognise that some pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds may need addition support to help to overcome their barriers to learning. Anlaby Primary School is a place where everyone can succeed and is committed to diminishing differences between vulnerable pupils and their less disadvantaged peers. The Pupil Premium forms a vital part of this process. The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium funding (PPF) will help us to achieve our vision to raise attainment and accelerate progress for eligible pupils, whatever their academic starting point and potential.
To do this we ensure that:
Pupil Premium Implementation
The use of Pupil Premium funding (PPF) is to diminish differences between those pupils receiving it and their non-Pupil Premium peers. All our work through (PPF) will focus on raising the achievement of disadvantaged children to reach or exceed their age related expectations. To do this we will analyse our data thoroughly to inform our decision making to maximise the impact of our pupil premium spending. Teaching staff will be involved in the analysis of data and identification of pupils’ strengths and weaknesses.
The range of provision will include:
Mrs Power is the Governor responsible for monitoring and oversight of the Pupil Premium Children. She meets regularly with Mrs Rudd our Pupil Premium Champions to discuss the school's strategy for pupil premium children and monitors the spending.
It is important that if you are in a family that may be eligible for free school meals you claim for them. This is now doubly important since the introduction of Universal Infant Free School Meals. Some parents think that because their child already receives a free meal it is not necessary for them to apply. This means that the school loses valuable income that can help many children. We send regular reminders outlining the importance of applying for this grant as the school does not automatically get the money.
Please see attached report on how this funding has been used in school during the last financial year.
