Pupils who receive Free School Meals, or who are entitled to claim them (regardless of whether parents choose to receive the meal or not) receive an extra sum of money in the school budget. This is the same for Looked After Children.
Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to diminish the difference between Pupil Premium and non Pupil Premium children. Historically levels of attainment nationally have been lower for those pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals. At Great Kimble School every child matters and our aim is for each child to develop to their full potential.
As with all our pupils, each child is treated as an individual. We acknowledge that all children develop at different rates and the additional funds received from the Government assist us in ensuring we are able to provide targeted interventions and support to try to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. It also allows us to provide further aspirations for pupils through giving them a wider range of experiences than they may otherwise have.
The governing body scrutinises how this extra money is spent to ensure that pupils benefit from the extra funding. The Headteacher meets with the Pupil Premium Governor on a termly basis to review the impact of the spending.
We currently have less than five pupils on roll who are eligible for this funding. To prevent the identification of these pupils, specific information about how the funding is used to support these pupils is held in the school office. Please contact the Headteacher if you would like more information.
