PUPIL PREMIUM MONEY 2016/2017

In the 2016 to 2017 financial year, the schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

£1,320 per pupil

The allocation for this year is £178, 040

As a school we are using our pupil premium money to fund the areas that we have highlighted that are highly effective in raising standards and improving the rate of progress. We look at the whole child and put strategies in place to improve self-confidence, self-esteem, motivation, ability to work individually or as part of a team, the ability to face new challenges and to provide opportunities for leadership skills. This runs alongside the more academic areas that require more individual input.

The Pupil Premium Money has been allocated in the following ways:

Enriching the Curriculum

How else could we use the sports premium funding to benefit the school in

the future?

 

To ensure continued professional development in line with our school needs it is essential that we continue to work with Kingsbury School Sports Partnership during the next academic year particularly to support new staff.

 

The Sports coach/Health mentor will be able to support our PE co-ordinator with assessment and continue the work planned for our school, working with the school teaching team to

embed further the progress we have made this year.

Attendance

Attendance is monitored on a regular basis. Every school day is important in the life of a child. We are aiming for 95% or above for every child. Many children actually manage 100% attendance! If your child is absent for any reason please either telephone the Secretary on the day of absence or write a letter to explain the absence. The school monitors unauthorised absences, attendance that falls below 90% and persistent absences. These issues will be followed up by a home visit.

Holidays

Holidays in term time are not permitted. If there are exceptional circumstances which require you to remove your child from school for a designated period please fill in the appropriate form which is available from the secretary (the form can also be downloadedHERE).

Late Arrivals

Children should be in school for the start of the school day. The names of latecomers will be recorded and parents will be invited in to discuss their child's lateness if it persists.
