Burnt Tree Primary School Pupil Premium Grant
The pupil premium grant is funding provided to schools to close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. It was introduced by the Government in 2011. A school will receive an amount of money for each pupil of compulsory school age who fits the eligibility criteria. Schools can decide how the pupil premium is best spent however the Government are clear that schools must employ strategies and interventions that they know will support pupils to reach their potential and raise attainment levels.
At Burnt Tree we support all of our pupils. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented with interventions to support vulnerable learners as and when required. The school leadership team and governing body monitor the impact of all spending and interventions, including the pupil premium.
