Dear Parents and Carers
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 by the Government. It is given to schools to support children from low income families who are known to be, or have been in the last six years, eligible for free school meals (FSM), and children who have been Looked After by the Local Authority continuously for more than six months.
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium in any way they like. However, they must use the additional funding to support pupils from low income families and other target groups. This money is allocated to initiatives which help to ensure pupils reach their full potential both academically and socially.
At Courthouse Green Primary School we do all we can to support all our pupils make the very best progress. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as and when required.
The School Leadership Team and Governing Body use the progress of individual pupils as our first starting point when allocating additional resource to support pupils’ progress. Our Governors and Senior Leaders monitor the impact of all Pupil Premium spending so that it helps pupils make better progress.
