The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units. Schools have the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the school budget, in a way that they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.
At Tadcaster Primary Academy, a targeted and strategic use of pupil premium funding supports us in achieving our vision of ensuring all our pupils have access to high quality teaching and learning opportunities that meet their needs.
We organise teaching and learning at Tadcaster Primary Academy in order to meet the needs of all children in the best way. We allocate some of the Pupil Premium money to make sure all children have their needs met through quality first teaching. Tadcaster Primary ensures that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that our socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met. TPA further supports these groups using strategies that are beyond the remit of the expenditure report.
We recognise that not all children who receive the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged receive the Pupil Premium Grant. Given this, we will carefully track how well Pupil Premium Grant children are achieving as a group compared to their peers in our school and nationally.
