The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The amount received is dependent on the number of children who are eligible and have claimed for free school meals at any time in the last six years.
We also receive funding for children who:
- have been looked after for one day or more
- have been adopted from care
Or who have left care under:
- a special guardianship order
- a residence order
- a child arrangement order
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium funding as they see fit. However, we are held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.
At Priory Rise we give great emphasis to the close tracking of pupil achievement to ensure all children are making good progress and we are then able to respond promptly if there are any concerns with individual children. We believe very strongly that all children can succeed and this underpins our school ethos.
Our Pupil Premium Lead is Mrs Kate Truan - Assistant Headteacher.
