Pupil Premium

 

A key priority of Pupil Premium money is to raise the attainment of those students in low income families.

The government has allocated a specific pupil premium grant to every school, which will be £1,300 per eligible pupil in 2014/15.

The money should enable these students to;

  • Improve their levels of attainment and progress.

  • Close attainment gaps relative to school averages.

  • Have full access to the curriculum.

  • Access our extracurricular provision.

Pupil Premium 2013/14

In 2013/14 the school received approximately £64,000.

Caddington Village School allocated this funding in support of the following areas;

  • Breakfast Club provision

  • Additional pastoral support

  • Targeted Teaching Assistant support

  • Lesson Study to develop learning outcomes for these pupils

  • Purchase of technological resources including hand held devices to support learning

  • Additional literacy and numeracy teaching staff

  • Assistance for participation on day and residential trips through our school welfare fund

This funding is crucial in helping us to increase our provision and the opportunities for our eligible pupils.
