At Nursery Hill Primary School, we believe that all of our pupils deserve and should receive the highest quality teaching experience.
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent and this should be reported to parents and carers on an annual basis. Here is the report for the expenditure for the financial year 2016-17.
The impact of Pupil Premium
Pupil premium has had a significant beneficial impact on the experience children have at Nursery Hill Primary School. Here are some examples:
TA intervention in the afternoons to improve standards in reading, writing and maths
Read Write Inc. training for new teachers
Financial allowance for eligible Pupil Premium children
Training in Chris Quigley Mastery Maths for all the staff
ICT resources to support Pupil Premium standards in EYFS
Helps make a contribution towards small class sizes
This year primary schools have been granted a 'Sports Premium' fund to develop Physical Education and school sports. This funding is ring-fenced and can only be spent on provision of P.E. and sport in schools.
This P.E. Premium document details how Nursery Hill Primary School has used this funding in 2017-18
The impact of P.E. Premium
