Turnfurlong Junior School

Pupil Premium

Aims

Turnfurlong Junior school is committed to ensuring that all pupils achieve the very best outcomes in terms of their academic and personal development alongside providing a rich and varied experience that develops life chances for children. Diminishing the difference in attainment and progress is key for all children; but with particular focus on children identified as Pupil Premium or disadvantaged.

Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools based on the number of children eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years and children in care or left care through adoption or another formal route. The school also receives a grant for pupils whose parents currently serve in the armed forces. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. It is expected that this funding is used to help and support these pupils and to ensure they make good progress.

Provision

No one child is the same and thus this is reflected in the wide variety of ways pupil premium is utilised. The provision provided encompasses both direct approaches to ‘narrowing the gap’ and other more creative interventions, which subsequently influence academic achievement and very importantly enhance their social and emotional well-being. We believe that pupil premium should be used to impact the wider school but it is also pertinent that the pupil premium is specifically tailored to meet the needs of individual pupil premium pupils, in addition to and in different ways from our other intervention programmes. Interventions for each pupil are decided on an individual, needs-led basis thus enabling the children to benefit from more than one intervention which are directly matched to their needs.
