Pupil Premium

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011.  This grant, which is additional to main school funding, is seen by the government as the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The pupil premium is allocated to school and is clearly identifiable.  Schools can decide how the pupil premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

At Chew Magna Primary School we support all of our pupils. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions and resources to support vulnerable learners as and when required.

The Senior Leadership Team and Governing Body monitor the impact of all spending and interventions, including the pupil premium.

The table below explains the types of strategies that we are spending our Pupil Premium allocation on:
