Pupil Premium Allocation – 2014/15

The Pupil Premium Grant, which is additional to main funding, is designed to address the national inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM), Looked After Children (CLA) and other children’s attainment. Cage Green Primary School is committed to ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the children who need it most. Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual children within their responsibility.

At Cage Green Primary School we support all of our children by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as well as additional support to enable the higher ability students to achieve more than they ever thought possible.

Strategies for Raising Attainment of pupils eligible for Pupil Premium

From Year R to Year 6 the attainment of pupils is tracked and intervention strategies implemented to improve progress in the basics and for additional support in other curriculum areas.

How will parents know it’s working?

All children’s progress is tracked through the academic overview so we can see if the intervention is working. If your child takes part in an intervention programme, we will also measure how they are doing at the start of the programme, and at the end, so we can see the difference. If you would like information on your child’s progress at any time, please feel free to speak to the class teacher. If you are unsure whether your child is eligible for free school meals, please speak to the School Office who will be happy to assist you.
