Pupil Premium Funding
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
It is provided for every child who has been registered as either eligible for free school meals, has a parent in the armed forces or for a child who has been adopted.
The funding received is based on:
£2300 for a child in care
£1320 for a child eligible for free school meals
£300  for a child with a parent in the armed forces.
Barriers to Learning
Research suggests that pupil premium children can face some barriers to their learning, these can include:
  • Limited vocabulary on entry to school
  • Limited support with school work at home
  • Limited cultural opportunities and experiences
  • Limited contact with role models who are high achieving and/or a knowledge of how to get there
  • For some children there can also be emotional challenges especially for services children or children in care
How we will support learning and measure impact
Every child's progress and attainment is continually monitored by class teachers.  
The headteacher or deputy headteacher meet with year group teachers every term (Class Progress Meetings, CPM's) to assess children's progress and to discuss required intervention plans which may support children who are either falling behind or who are ready to be further challenged to exceed their expected target.
The Senior Leadership Team meet termly after the CPM's to discuss and plan any required intervention programs and resources.
The Governors take a strategic overview of this assessment cycle and have appointed a lead Governor to oversee the monitoring of the Pupil Premium funding.
The impact of the Pupil Premium funding is measured through a child's progress whilst attending Tavistock Primary & Nursery School and also how the school is closing the attainment gap between those children entitled to this extra funding and those children who are not entitled.
Governors review Pupil Premium spending in the Autumn Term, the next review will take place in the Autumn Term 2018.
