Our School endeavours to consistently ensure that every individual student is given the best possible chance of achieving their full potential. Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is carefully managed at Woodseats Primary School to enable us to offer personalised support for students eligible for pupil premium funding, in a range of creative ways that will have clear and positive impact.
The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals; those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel. In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past six years. Nationally, the statistics show that students who are in receipt of free school meals do less well than their peers in external exams. The aim of this money is to try to close that attainment gap. All schools are required to publish, on their websites, the amount of funding they have received and how the money is to be spent.
Please see the attachment below to see how we are spending the Pupil Premium money in 2018/19.
