Pupil Premium Allocation

Pupil Premium Strategy 2019-20
Since 2012 , there has been a requirement for schools to report on their use of the Pupil Premium. This is a sum of money allocated per pupil who: is Looked After (foster care), has been previously adopted from care, is in a forces family or has been eligible for Free School Meals within the last 6 years (‘Ever 6’).

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. 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.

The beautiful Cerys (A Finnish Lapphund) visits us every single Friday with her owner Kate.  We help to teach Cerys how to read and she listens very carefully to us.

We have been angling several times with Mark Smedley at Cornfield Farm Fishery in Lancashire. In our first session we caught a whopping total of 52 fish! These sessions are paid for through our Pupil Premium funds and our Sports Premium money. These opportunities are incredible and are another exceptional experience that our children here at Greatwood receive.

Outdoor Education- Walk to Sutton Woods

Grimwith Reservoir

As part of our pupil premium strategy for 2019-2020 and for many years to come all pupil premium children from years 2-6 will take part in a 6 week intense outdoor education project. We have trained up a member of staff (Mr Magee) to deliver Outdoor Education to the highest of standards.

 

The project involves walking, climbing, cycling, fishing and a final ‘full day hike.’


All children are provided with a set of waterproofs and walking boots and are taught expedition skills including map reading, orienteering, building a secure wind and waterproof shelter and outdoor first aid skills amongst many other skills that the children acquire along the way.
