Pupil premium is a sum of money the school receives for each student who is either in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) or who has been in receipt of them in the past.
Nationally, the statistics show that students who are in receipt of FSM do less well than their peers in external exams. The aim of this money is to try to close that attainment gap.
We view the needs of all pupils as important and we strive to create the best opportunities and experiences for every single pupil at the school.
A provision is also made for children who have a parent in the armed services. Easington Lane Primary School is committed to ensuring maximum progress for all groups of children and strives to close any gaps.
We actively promote equality of opportunity for all staff, governors, pupils and parents, creating a harmonious learning community where all can succeed. We have a clear strategic approach to the use of specific Pupil Premium funding and plans are integrated into wider school support and improvement systems. These are monitored and evaluated regularly and in depth data analysis ensures that the correct support and strategies are identified to maximise progress.
Strong leadership systems ensure that pupil premium funding has the necessary impact. This includes identified governors having responsibility for pupil premium, the deputy head teacher leading the development plan and a coordinated strategic leadership approach to implementing the plans. All matters relating to the pupil premium are reported back to the governors via the sub committees of the governors, ensuring that the school is held to account for the impact of spending.
