Pupil Premium - Background

The government believes that the Pupil Premium, funding which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the inequalities sometimes experienced by pupils from less affluent backgrounds. There is a wealth of research that suggests that pupils from more deprived backgrounds achieve less well when compared to their more affluent peers. Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools.  It is the responsibility of each school to decide how the funding is spent. At Ryefield Primary School we work hard to to ensure that the money has maximum impact. The impact is regularly and rigorously monitored.
Pupils at Ryefield, who are entitled to Free School Meals, are currently achieving broadly in line with their peers. This indicates that the provision at Ryefield Primary School is good. It suggests that our "interventions" have a positive impact on pupil outcomes. If pupils fall behind, we work hard to provide support and experiences that "Narrow the Gap".
