Pupil Premium Grant
The pupil premium is additional funding given to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. The government uses eligibility for free school meals as the main measure of deprivation at pupil level.
Common barriers for disadvantaged pupils can be; weak language and communication skills, lack of confidence, more frequent behavioural difficulties, attendance and punctuality issues and less support at home. There may also be complex family situations that can have an impact on children’s learning and progress. The challenges are complex and varied, therefore, it is important that individual needs are identified and catered for as we are very clear that negative, outside influences are not an excuse for underachievement.
At All Saints’ CE Primary School & Nursery , there is a school-wide commitment to raising achievement for ALL pupils and a key objective for the use of the pupil premium grant is to close the gap between pupil groups.
The above indicates that the school's provision for monitoring and improving attendance for PP pupils is highly effective.
Whilst the school intends to continue with many of these strategies in 18/19, provision/actions for Pupil Premium children are subject to constant review and subject to a variety of factors eg pupil progress review, analysis of data and the individual needs of children.
Our Sports Premium
At Chorley All Saints’ we have always placed a high importance on our PE and Sport provision and have received a variety of awards for this commitment. We are lucky to have an enthusiastic team of staff who not only deliver high quality teaching of PE during curriculum time, but also commit themselves to providing a wide range of opportunities for children to enjoy PE and Sport through after school and lunchtime clubs. We endeavour to give our children opportunities to experience different sporting challenges as they move through the school, and to develop their talents in appropriate competitive formats.
The government’s commitment to provide new funding for Primary PE and Sport means that we can now look to further develop and enhance the experience of the children at All Saints’ in this area.
