Pupil Premium

COLWICH CE PRIMARY SCHOOL

PUPIL PREMIUM FUNDING STATEMENT

 

The Pupil Premium funding settlement received by Colwich CE Primary School is calculated based on the number of children on roll who:

  • are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • have been eligible for free school meals at any time within the last six years (‘Ever 6’)
  • are in the care of the local authority – ‘Looked After’ children
  • are adopted from care
  • are children whose parent(s) are in the armed forces

 

Pupil Premium funding is intended to address inequalities between these groups of children and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who are most in need.

 

At Colwich School we aim to ensure that children experience quality first teaching, meeting the needs of each individual child. Ongoing assessments ensure that children who are in receipt of pupil premium funding are allocated additional support matched to their needs.
