Love to Learn, Together with the Lord
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.
Research has found that disadvantaged pupils have been worst affected by the impact of the pandemic. It is therefore more important than ever that we focus on support for disadvantaged pupils.
The pupil premium provides important support to contribute to the attainment of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. All Saints' pupil premium strategy is founded on the following principles and practices:
High Quality Teaching
Spending on developing high quality teaching may include investment in professional development, training and support for all our teaching staff. Ensuring all our teachers are effective, and that every teacher is supported to keep improving, is the key ingredient of a successful school
Targeted academic support
Evidence consistently shows the positive impact that targeted academic support can have, including on those who are not making good progress, or those who have been disproportionately impacted by the effects of the pandemic. We carefully consider how classroom teachers and teaching assistants can provide effective targeted academic support eg rapid, structured small group intervention and tutoring.
Wider strategies relate to the most significant non-academic challenges to success in school, including attendance, behaviour, and social and emotional support, which also may negatively impact upon academic attainment. Given the impact of the pandemic, we want to ensure the best support possible for our all pupils' emotional well-being.
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.
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.
