The government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant ( PPG ) 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 certain groups of children. The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools 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 Sennen School we aim to support all our pupils. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners as and when required. The governors believe in using this grant to enable all children to enjoy access, participation and achievement within school life, particularly for those identified as disadvantaged, vulnerable or under-achieving, through high quality teaching & learning and resources.
We plan carefully each year when allocating pupil premium spending. Through detailed analysis of assessment data for all year groups we can ensure the funding is spent in the best interests of the children's development.
