Pupil Premium funding that is received by the school annually is used to improve pupil attainment and to help overcome any barriers to learning in order to close the gap and give pupils the very best chance to go on to be successful learners later in life. Qualification for this funding is dependent on a number of things – if you would like any further information or think that your child might qualify, please do contact the school office and let us know or download a form and bring it in to school.
How is the Pupil Premium used at South Kilworth Primary School?
We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils. Appropriate provision is made for pupils that belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed. Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. This will be through whole school monitoring of data, assessments and discussions with the class teacher. We recognise that not all pupils that receive Pupil Premium funding will be socially disadvantaged.
The funding is used in several ways at South Kilworth School. Funding is used to provide additional support for children to ensure they make good progress in core curriculum areas. In addition, funding is available for pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium to provide some assistance with costs associated with school trips and uniform.
