Pupil Premium Grant
In April 2011 the Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant. The Pupil Premium Grant provides additional funding for pupils who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or for those in long-term care.
At The Globe Primary Academy, approximately 20% of pupils are entitled to Free School Meals. The school has used its Pupil Premium funding to run programmes that target all pupils who are disadvantaged or underachieving, as well as those specifically eligible for Free School Meals. The funding has been targeted at a number of levels with are detailed in the report and includes:
• to provide additional support for children in English and Mathematics
• to prepare pupils to be emotionally receptive for learning
As part of our team, the school is proud to have an Inclusion Support Teacher and whenever possible additional teaching assistants who provide additional academic support for our children. Furthermore, our team of Learning Mentors works effectively to develop self-confidence, life skills and social skills for our vulnerable children.
The effectiveness of all these interventions is measured through assessments of individual pupils and careful tracking of the progress of all pupils in English and Maths. Evaluations will focus on academic gains and how pupils’ emotional resilience has developed as a consequence of these interventions.
