Elton - Pupil Premium Spending
At Elton, we are committed to ensuring all our children make the best possible progress. We track the achievements of every child on a regular basis and do all we can to make sure each child achieves his/her potential across the curriculum. We acknowledge that we have a duty to ensure that no group of children are disadvantaged due to their gender, ethnic origin, family income or background.
The Pupil Premium grant enables us to build and extend upon the best practice we already endeavour to provide. For any child not making expected progress towards achieving end of year age related expectations in any subject, we analyse their barriers to learning and ensure that they receive targeted intervention to enable them to close the gap. We also recognise that the pupil premium grant can be invaluable for extending the breadth of the curriculum for these children, and that success in enrichment and extra-curricular activities for example, can have an incredibly positive impact on a child's confidence and self-esteem, enabling them to achieve more across all curriculum areas. For a higher ability child receiving the pupil premium, we endeavour to push them to achieve their full potential through teaching at greater depth, or buying resources which are designed to challenge and stimulate a love of learning.
