The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.

In order to ensure our PPI provision is effective we closely monitor any interventions, support and strategies. We use data to inform impact and hold half termly meetings to review any targeted support. We aim to regularly review our provision including any interventions to ensure that they are relevant and purposeful for the targeted children. We will review our provision in February.
Although there are many additional strategies in place to target PP children, the class teacher has ownership. Quality first teaching and the planning of a relevant and exciting curriculum ensures we build the knowledge and experiences of all groups of children.
