In our school we ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils. We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups. This includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed. In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who received free school meals will be socially disadvantaged. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium Grant to support any pupil who has been identified by the school as socially disadvantaged.
" It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility." Department for Education.
