The Pupil Premium is a key component of our mission to ensure that every child, regardless of background or circumstance, has the chance to thrive and achieve their full potential.
What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided by the government to schools in England, designed to address the inequalities that some children face. The funding is allocated to support pupils who may be at a disadvantage due to factors such as economic background, family circumstances, or being in care.
Our Commitment to Equality and Inclusion
At St Alphege, we are deeply committed to creating an inclusive and nurturing learning environment where every child feels valued and supported. The Pupil Premium funding allows us to implement targeted interventions and initiatives that address the specific needs of individual pupils, ensuring that they receive the additional support required to flourish academically and socially.
How We Use Pupil Premium
The Pupil Premium funding is utilized strategically to benefit eligible pupils across our schools. Key areas of focus include:
Quality Teaching: Ensuring high-quality teaching that meets the diverse needs of our pupils.
Targeted Interventions: Implementing tailored interventions to address specific learning needs and accelerate progress.
Enrichment Activities: Providing opportunities for enrichment activities, including educational trips, music lessons, and extracurricular clubs.
Well-being Support: Offering additional support for the emotional well-being of pupils, including counseling services and pastoral care.
Resources and Materials: Investing in resources and materials that enhance the learning experience for all pupils.
Monitoring and Evaluation
We are committed to transparency and accountability in our use of Pupil Premium funding. Regular monitoring and evaluation processes are in place to assess the impact of interventions and initiatives on the academic and personal development of eligible pupils.
Engaging with Parents
Parents and guardians play a crucial role in the success of our Pupil Premium initiatives. We encourage open communication and collaboration, welcoming input and feedback from parents to ensure that our support aligns with the individual needs of each child.
