The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently entitled to benefits or have been entitled at some point during the last 6 years. Pupil Premium is also allocated to children who are or have been looked after, or adopted or whose parents serve in the armed forces.
We recognise that not all children from low-income families will be socially disadvantaged and that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged will be eligible for pupil premium.
However, at Sythwood we aim for all children to achieve their potential and eliminate all barriers to learning. In order to do this, we ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils, and that appropriate provision is provided for those who require additional support.
The impact on educational attainment from expenditure of the pupil premium funding is reflected in the results of the school. The school has extensive monitoring and support systems in place to enable favourable outcomes for the most vulnerable pupils.
