Pupil Premium and Sports Funding
Wath Victoria School - Governing Body Pupil Premium Statement
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, funding additional to the delegated school budget, is the best way to address underachievement and inequalities between disadvantaged and other pupils by ensuring funding is targeted at the children who need it most.
Pupil Premium funding is identifiable within the school’s income but is not ring-fenced. Wath Victoria School aims to close any gaps in achievement, rather than simply ‘narrow’ gaps, between any category of disadvantaged and ‘other’ pupils.
It is for individual schools to decide how Pupil Premium funding is spent in order to raise the attainment and achievements of this group of pupils, and so the ways in which Wath Victoria School uses its Pupil Premium funding each year may be different to that in other schools, and may change from year to year.
Schools are accountable for how they spend the Pupil Premium, and for the impact it has on children’s learning.
The school recognises that the children who qualify as ‘disadvantaged’ have a range of needs and, to ensure good progress is made in learning, a programme tailored to suit a pupil’s individual requirements is put in place.
