Pupil & P.E Premium
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, funding for which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current inequalities by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most.
The Pupil Premium for 2017 1018 has already been allocated to schools. It has been for schools to 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.
The school and Governing Body feel it essential to be strategic in its use of Pupil Premium Funds. A pastoral team was set in school to consider the needs of all vulnerable children in school to ensure that appropriate support was being targeted effectively.
Manorfield Infant & Nursery School prioritised the use of the Pupil Premium as follows:
- Free School Meal (FSM) students who are under-achieving
- Students from other vulnerable groups who are underachieving
- FSM and other vulnerable group students who are in danger of underachieving
- Other underachieving students
In the academic year 2016 2017 children were entitled to free school meals. We are certain that there will be more children in school who are eligible but because all children in key Stage1 are entitled to free meals a number of parents do not feel the necessity to claim. In September 2017 32 children were entitled to free school meals. This may rise during the year as parents understand the necessity to claim.
Pupil Premium was used to fund:
- Interventions: small group and one-to-one
- Subsidies: the cost of school visits and experiences in school are subsidised using the Pupil premium and all pupils are able to access these experiences.
School Visits & in school experiences
All children and reception and key stage 1 benefit from at least 3 visits every year which are part of a carefully planned curriculum. We acknowledge that for parents the cost of this is significant and minimise the cost for all children so all children can benefit from the visits. All children who are eligible for free school meals have free educational visits & in school experiences.
