Pupil Premium Allocation
The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding made by the Government to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. There are several categories for which this funding is allocated and the amount that the school receives is dependent on the numbers of children who are in these categories.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding it receives and how this funding is to be used.
At Kingsnorth CEP School it is our intention that all pupils in our care flourish at our school and that the provision of enabling environments and effective teaching and learning assure this. We firmly believe that pupil need and not labels should drive strategy and this is at the centre of everything that we do and inside every professional conversation. The focus of our Pupil Premium strategy is for every colleague to be a champion so that every pupil may achieve equality and success.
In order to consider the challenges faced by vulnerable pupils, we have continued to embed pupil and teacher conferencing so that we can capture their voices; this has informed our approach and the construction of our model of support. This therefore represents a whole school mindset and training will continue to evolve over the lifetime of this document in order to respond to the needs and challenges of our pupils. Many of the identified areas of challenge are also wider school priorities and are embedded in our school improvement plan.
Currently, we will have an allocation for Pupil premium of £62,962. The intention is to spend this allocation as we have done in previous years but with an emphasis on 'closing the gaps' through booster sessions, tutoring and targeted intervention. To see intentions and outcomes for Pupil Premium allocation for this year, please find the strategy document at the bottom of this page.
