Pupil Premium is funding given to all schools to address inequalities and enable support to reach the pupils who need it the most. Individual schools decide how the Pupil Premium should be spent as they understand how best to determine the appropriate provision for their individual pupils. At Lionel Primary School we believe that no child should be disadvantaged as a result of their background and that all are entitled to the highest quality of education.
We ensure that the learning needs of all pupils are met through high quality teaching and learning in the classroom and beyond. Where appropriate it may involve intervention groups of children and individual pupils.
Throughout the year the progress and attainment of all pupils is monitored and where we identify that a pupil may be at risk of underachievement, targeted intervention programmes are put in place.
We understand that not all pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium are socially disadvantaged and that not all disadvantaged pupils are registered for Pupil Premium.
