Learning For Life

Welcome to Meridian Community Primary School & Nursery"We love learning at Meridian because it's fun" (Year 1)"We use learning behaviours to make us better learners" (Year 2)"Meridian is friendly and welcoming " (Year 3)"We collaborate to make colourful learning walls!" (Year 4)"We enjoy celebrating special events" (Year 5)"We go on adventures to support our learning" (Year 6)

Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

 

The Pupil Premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers. If a child has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years or has been continuously looked after for at least 6 months (LAC) the school receives an amount per head within their budget. This has risen each year to the current amount of £1320 per pupil. A provision is also made for children who have a parent in the armed services. Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of 1 of the following: adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order, a residence order. Meridian Community primary School is committed to ensuring maximum progress for all groups of children and strives to close any gaps.

 

Meridian Community Primary School actively promotes equality of opportunity for all staff, governors, pupils and parents, creating a harmonious learning community where all can succeed. The school is committed to developing the “whole child” and focuses on the emotional and psychological welfare of their children in addition to their educational provision. We have a clear, strategic approach to the use of specific Pupil Premium funding and plans are integrated into wider school support and improvement systems. These are monitored and evaluated regularly and in depth data analysis ensures that the correct support and strategies are identified to maximize progress. Strong leadership systems ensure that Pupil Premium funding has the necessary impact. This includes the Assistant Head teacher leading the development plan and a coordinated strategic leadership approach to implementing plans. All matters relating to the Pupil Premium are reported back to the Governors via the Curriculum, Staff and Pupil sub-committees, ensuring that the school is held to account for the impact of spending. An inter-threaded matrix approach for the support of PPG pupils is enabling school to develop a strong, comprehensive and sustainable support package which leads to improvements in outcomes for this identified group.

You are entitled to Free School Meals if you are in receipt of Income Support, an Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, an Income-Related Employment and Support Allowance, Child Tax Credit (only if you do NOT receive Working Tax Credit), Guaranteed Element of State Pension Credit, National Asylum Support Service.

Ofsted Evaluation (December 2014)

‘Pupil premium funding is astutely directed at meeting the needs of disadvantaged pupils. Senior leaders plan efficiently and review the impact of this funding sharply, changing support as required. This has led to an improvement in the achievement of these pupils.’

 

‘Governors accurately analyse progress information, sharply review the impact of the pupil premium grant and other funding, and challenge school leaders relentlessly to achieve higher standards’
