The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is allocated to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:
- registered as eligible to receive Free School Meals
- been in care for six months or longer
- children of service personnel
at any point over the last six years.
All schools can decide how to allocate this additional funding to best ensure that each pupil thrives and makes excellent progress in their learning. Aveton Gifford C of E (VC) Primary School is committed to ensuring that every individual pupil is given the best possible chance of making excellent progress and so achieve their full potential.
At Aveton GIfford C of E (VC) Primary School we aim to achieve 100% of pupils to be secondary ready at the end of Year 6. Furthermore, we closely track progress to avoid limiting attainment. We believe that social disadvantage must not be allowed to be a barrier to a child's destiny.
