Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools according to the number of children that have been eligible for free school meals within the last six years, from service families or children who are looked after (in care for at least six months). The purpose of the additional funding is to ensure that the achievement of children from these groups is in line with the national average or better.
At Red Barn Primary School, we have used this funding to further complement our Quality First Teaching as well as seeking improvements in individualised provision. As part of our inclusive approach, we aim for all children to succeed, regardless of background. Through discussion with senior leaders, we are able to work with families to best allocate the funding to support children.
