At Eastbury Farm Primary School, we want all our children to leave us having been inspired to be confident and successful learners, ready to explore their future as resilient and responsible individuals. In relation to Pupil Premium pupils, as with all pupils we will work to ensure they can reach their potential regardless of any barriers they have. Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils who meet the eligibility criteria.
Eligible Pupils Criteria:
- Eligible for Free Schools Meals (FSM) in the last six years; or
- Looked after continuously for 1 day or more
- Adopted from care
- Children of Armed Forces personnel
We recognise that some pupils in receipt of pupil premium may have specific barriers which hinder their progress and mean that they are at risk of not achieving as highly as their peers. We draw on research evidence, such as the Education Endowment Foundation’s teaching and learning toolkit, and evidence from our own experience to allocate funding to interventions that are most likely to maximise achievement.
As we have a larger number of children of Armed Forces Personnel, we detail how we spend the forces premium in a separate document.
Services Children ProvisionWe are fortunate enough to offer a wealth of emotional and social provision for every child at Eastbury Farm. We appreciate that the transient lifestyle of a military family can be challenging so to further support this we would encourage parents to share when children are going through a period of disruption or uncertainty, whether that be due a parent deploying or preparation for relocation to another area or school. Please speak to your child's class teacher so that we can ensure that your child is given the appropriate support.
We want all our children to live health and active lives. We want to provide all our children with positive and enjoyable access to regular physical activity. Schools have a central role to play in supporting all children and young people to live healthy active lives.
Crucial to achieving this is ensuring that our children have access to at least 30 minutes of physical activity during the school day, alongside high-quality PE provision. We want our children to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. Our PE and sport premium grant funding is used to help us meet these aims.
