It is our responsibility to ensure that every child leaves Pot Kiln Primary School excited about learning and determined to succeed.

Pupil Premium will be used and managed to enable us to tailor support for identified children in a range of ways appropriate to their needs.

• We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.

• We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils that belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged children are adequately assessed and addressed.

• In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are eligible for free school meals (or who have been eligible in the last 6 years) are socially disadvantaged.

• We reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils that the school can legitimately categorise as being socially disadvantaged.

Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis. This will identify priority groups and classes. Progress and attainment data will be fundamental in identifying need. During pupil progress meetings, 6 times a year, the progress and attainment of pupil premium children will be analysed and levels of support to accelerate progress and close gaps will be tailed to need. This is changeable and we believe in the importance of flexible support at Pot Kiln primary school.
