Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Summary

The government continues to provide funding targeted at addressing underlying inequalities and aiming to tackle the disadvantages that some children experience in life. As a school we used the money carefully to ensure that our vulnerable children achieved the best support possible. One of the measures for assessing the impact of this funding is to look at those children who claim free school meals (FSM).

The school’s strategy for closing the Pupil Premium gap was very successful in 2015-2016. This was evidenced by the attainment gap closing across the school. Pupil Premium children, without additional vulnerability factors, are now performing broadly in line with Non Pupil Premium children. Overall, any learning gaps are now negligible and Pupil Premium children are making the same, and in some cases, better progress than their peers.

Alderwood continues to be committed to tackling early inequalities.
