Gretton Primary School


Pupil Premium Spending – 2019-20

We have 4 children eligible for Pupil Premium Funding, out of the school total of 150 pupils.

 This means that 2.6% of the school are eligible for this funding of £1320 per child per year.

This equates to £5280 over the year.

Our aims in managing this funding.

  • To spend the money wisely to ensure that any gaps in progress and attainment between socially disadvantaged pupils and their peers are closing.
  • To clearly identify socially disadvantaged pupils who may be at risk of under achieving.
  • To provide early intervention and support for all socially disadvantaged pupils.
  • To ensure that socially disadvantaged pupils achieve or exceed age related expectations and that the vast majority achieve in line with their peers.
  • To provide effective support for pupils, parents and families to ensure that children are ready to learn every day.
  • To have effective systems in place for identifying those pupils eligible for pupil premium and for tracking the progress they make as a result of interventions.
  • To regularly monitor and review the effectiveness of our spending and to share this information with parents, Governors and staff.
