The Pupil Premium is an element of school funding aimed at narrowing the gap in attainment between certain disadvantaged groups of pupils and those who are more well off. The funding is provided to schools, which decide how best to spend this according to local needs.
Glory Farm Primary School IMPACT OF PUPIL PREMIUM
Annual Report to Parents & Guardians for 2016-17
“The government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.”
(Department for Education website 26.04.12)
Staff and Directors at Glory Farm Primary School are committed to meeting the pastoral, social and academic needs of all pupils within the school environment. Our expectations of all of our pupils are high, and we strive to ensure that all groups of pupils and individuals maximise their potential. Glory Farm Primary School is committed to “narrowing the gap,” between vulnerable pupils and their peers, and the pupil premium funding forms a vital part of that process.
