Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

 

At St Laurence CE Primary School, we believe that by having the highest expectations of all learners, the highest possible standards will be achieved.

 

Some pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds require additional support; therefore we will use all the available resources to help them reach their full potential.

 

The pupil premium grant (PPG) was created to provide funding for three key areas:

 

  • Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers.

  • Supporting children and young people with parents in the armed forces.

  • Providing funding for looked-after children (LAC).

 

If you would like to apply for pupil premium funding for your child please visit the school office, where you will find information on eligibility and how to apply.

 

How do we use the funding at St Laurence?

 

  • Pre and post teaching: teachers and teaching assistants hold boosting sessions with pupil premium children. They also pre - teach upcoming topics, this provides a confidence boost for children as they have already been given a solid grounding in areas before they encounter them during lessons.
  • We hold nurture sessions for pupil premium children in both KS1 and KS2. 
  • We offer a free breakfast for every pupil premium child at school. 
  • We hold extra Sats boosting session for year 6 disadvantaged children - 'Maths and Cake'. This was a successful initiative started in 2018/19, which are keen to continue this year. 
  • We provide extra PE lessons each week for our disadvantaged children. 
  • Our disadvantaged children benefit from a mentor relationship within school. All pupil premium children are assigned a member of staff as a trusted adult, that they can speak to, in addition to their class teacher. 
  • This year, we are starting 'Pupil Conferences'. This is an initiative where disadvantaged children are given the opportunity to speak to a member of staff about any worries, successes or problems they may be having.
