Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional Government funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers.

During the academic year 2016-2017 Low Furness CE Primary School received an allocation of £8,960, this funding remained within the main delegated budget.

The children for whom the funding is intended for are clearly identified on the school tracking system. Their individual progress is closely monitored by the Headteacher and the senior managers and reported to governors.

Over the academic year our allocation has been spent on additional teaching assistants to;

  • Provide intervention where required focusing on writing, a whole school priorities
  • Provide quality feedback to targeted individuals to ensure they are aware of the steps required to accelerate their learning
  • Promote independence in learning
  • Provide quality focused phonics sessions
