Pupil Premium is additional money given to schools for every child who attends that school and also has free school meals, is a child from a Service Family, or is looked after. Across the country, children from these groups generally achieve lower levels than children from other groups. The government has given this money to help these children achieve higher grades and to narrow the gap between them and other children.
At Buckfastleigh Primary School we have based our spending on national research that shows that the strategies outlined below are effective in raising attainment for children in receipt of free school meals, those that are from Service Families, or are looked after. They are also effective for ALL children. Please find below our strategy document for 2016-2017 and our review of spending for the 2015-2016 academic year.
