Pupil premium is allocated to schools for children of statutory school age from low income families who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (or have been in the last 6 years), children who are looked after and to children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
Our principles of fund allocation:
- We organise teaching and learning at Kemsley in order to meet the needs of all children in the best way. As a result we allocate some pupil premium money to make sure all children have their needs met
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met
- We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged have free school meals.
- We are aware that there are a growing number of families who could be classed as ‘just about managing’ who are not in receipt of pupil premium. We consider this group to be possibly disadvantaged.
The Pupil Premium plan on the right sets out our 3 year strategic overview for pupil premium spend at Kemsley. In addition, it highlights the key actions for 2020/21. Assessment data informs the objectives, and is used to analyse success of actions.
