Pupil Premium, using additional resources from outside the School’s Budget, is intended to address the current inequalities by ensuring funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
At Wantage CE Primary School we have always strived to ensure that all children make good progress. Our pastoral care and vigorous monitoring and tracking of all pupils help us to identify any pupils who are at risk of not making sufficient progress and have helped us to plan and implement good intervention strategies. The profile of our school shows that 15.7% of pupils were eligible for Pupil Premium funding in the financial year 2016 – 2017 and that the school received £89,760.
Support at Wantage CE Primary School takes many different forms and has been used to enhance provision specifically for individual children and thereby promote learning and deepen engagement and to provide, as needed, pastoral support through, for example, access to Emotional Literacy Support. Funding has also been used to ensure that children are not disadvantaged in taking part in wider curriculum opportunities (e.g. Residential Trips). As the school places a high priority on the support of all children, additional funding from the school budget is used to supplement the funding provided by government.
