Pupil Premium funding at Banks Road Primary School
In the 2022-23 academic year, Banks Road Primary School will receive £204,765. This amount includes the school’s Recovery Funding allocation.
This money will be spent to improve education outcomes for our disadvantaged pupils.
At Banks Road, we ensure that we do not treat Pupil Premium eligible pupils as a homogenous group but instead give our disadvantaged pupils a high profile within the school.
To improve achievement and diminish the difference between Pupil Premium and Non-Pupil Premium eligible pupils, we aim to:
- Never confuse eligibility for Pupil Premium with low ability. We recognise that some of our most able pupils are eligible for Pupil Premium.
- Analyse achievement data to track progress and check that interventions (if applicable) are working effectively, making adjustments as necessary.
- Ensure that the allocation and spending of the Pupil Premium is given high priority in terms of staffing.
- Ensure that a senior school leader, linked to a governor, has a clear overview of how the Pupil Premium funding is (and will be) allocated and what difference it is making.
- Ensure that Teachers know which pupils are eligible so they can take responsibility for accelerating their progress.
- Ensure that Teaching Assistants are highly trained and understand their role in helping disadvantaged pupils achieve.
