OBJECTIVES OF PUPIL PREMIUM SPENDING
Pupil Premium Funding is in addition to main school funding. It is allocated to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals, (FSM), and their peers. Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant, (PPG), is to narrow the gap between pupil groups. As a school we have a good track record of ensuring that pupils make good progress and have been successful in bridging the gap in the levels of attainment between FSM and non-FSM pupils. We are determined to ensure that the additional funding that has been allocated to the school has an effective impact. We undertook a careful analysis of internal and external pupil-level data, historical attainment and progress rates, to ensure that these funds are used to the maximum effect. At Bourne Primary class teachers, phase leaders and subject leaders know which pupils are eligible for Pupil Premium so they can take responsibility for accelerating progress and this ensures that accountability is shared across the school.
