The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to underachievement. These children are classified as disadvantaged, meaning that due to family financial circumstances they are eligible to take up free school meal provision, or they are children looked after by the authority.
The funding received by Southfields Primary School has been used in a variety of ways in order to improve attainment and help overcome barriers to learning.
We have high aspirations for all the children in Southfields Primary School and believe that all children should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential. We seek, as a school community, to provide personalised learning opportunities and targeted support to allow every child to flourish.
As we recognise that not all pupils who are academically or socially disadvantaged are registered for free school meals, we reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil, or group of pupils, identified by the school as being at a significant disadvantage.
