Pupil Premium Plan

The Pupil Premium Grant is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to schools on the basis of the number of students on roll known to be currently eligible for Free School Meals or who have claimed within the last 6 years, as well as students who have been looked after for more than 1 day by the Local Authority. Children of members of the armed forces are also entitled to Forces funding premium. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.

We organise teaching and learning at Stondon Lower in order to meet the needs of the children in the best way.

What do we do at Stondon Lower to diminish the difference?
  • Half termly and termly progress review of all children including children in receipt of Pupil Premium Grant.
  • Allocation of a proportion of the Pupil Premium money to employ an additional qualified teacher who provides intervention where a need has been identified in maths, reading and writing support for children in receipt of Pupil Premium Grant as identified by the class teacher.
  • All classes in our school have additional adult support for at least 3 hours of every day. This ensures that the needs of our pupils can be met in small groups within their own classes.
  • Trained Teaching Assistants deliver phonic teaching and other interventions beyond classroom provision.
  • We provide access to breakfast and after school clubs, lunchtime clubs, trips and visitors to enrich the curriculum for all children and will use pupil premium grant to enable children to have equal access where this a potential barrier.

Stondon Lower School further supports these children using many additional and personalised strategies.

We recognise that not all children who receive the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged receive the Pupil Premium Grant. Given this, we carefully track how Pupil Premium Grant children are achieving as a group compared to their peers at Stondon Lower School and nationally.
