PUPIL PREMIUM AWARDS 2016 WINNER
In February 2016, Pomphlett received a local award for the Key Stage 2 category of the Pupil Premium Awards 2016 from the Department for Education. We were selected for this award because we are one of the high achieving schools in the country in terms of attainment and progress for our disadvantaged pupils since 2011. The Under-Secretary of State for Childcare and Education, Sam Gyimah MP, stated that it was clear we provided disadvantaged pupils with a good start in life and prepared them well for secondary school. The full letter is reproduced here. This is a coveted and prestigious award, which we are clearly very proud to have received.
WHAT IS PUPIL AND SERVICE PREMIUM?
Pupil Premium and Service Premium are government funds allocated to schools to support children from low income families and those who have a parent in the Armed Services. Schools decide how this funding (allocated to schools for each Free School Meals (FSM) and Service Family pupil) is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at their school.
HOW DOES POMPHLETT PRIMARY USE ITS PREMIUM FUNDING?
We use Pupil Premium and Service Premium funding to ensure all FSM children and Service Family children are supported so they make at least good academic progress. Service children are also supported so that any additional needs relating to their emotional and social well-being are also addressed.
