As we looked at the lights in the far distance last night, we all reflected on our achievements of the week. We’ve missed home, conquered fears, laughed hysterically and not stopped running around since our arrival. We all enjoyed a ‘dance off’at the disco. https://t.co/gFYCm4aKNm

Yesterday evening we all experienced Rifle Shooting and had a choice of curry or pork for dinner. This morning we were lucky enough to have a well needed lay in (wake up call was 7:30)! The boys have a very busy day ahead, it’s the BIG swing later on and the fancy disco tonight https://t.co/Hf6f4viNYH

Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It’s a school-level grant that gives schools extra resources to help them meet challenges, including those arising from deprivation.

It’s allocated for schools to:

improve the academic outcomes of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities

close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers across the country

Merstham Primary School Pupil Premium Online Statement

Merstham Primary School receives funding for each disadvantaged pupil and uses the funding flexibly, in the best interests of each eligible pupil. GLF leaders draw upon an evidence based approach to apply a ‘tiered’ approach to delivering their pupil premium strategy.

Tier 1: Improving Teaching

Schools arrange training and professional development for all the their staff to improve the impact of teaching and learning for pupils.

Tier 2: Academic support

Schools should decide on the main issues stopping their pupils from succeeding at school and use the pupil premium to buy extra help.

Tier 3: Wider approaches

This may include non-academic use of the pupil premium such as:

 school breakfast clubs

 music lessons for disadvantaged pupils

 help with the cost of educational trips or visits

speech and language therapy

Schools may find using the pupil premium in this way helps to:

 increase pupils’ confidence and resilience

 encourage pupils to be more aspirational

 benefit non-eligible pupils

A longer term strategy

Merstham Primary Schoo takes a longer view of the support the grant provides. Leaders plan the use of the grant to support children as they pass through the whole school to the next stage of their

education/destination. We do this by aligning our Pupil Premium strategy with our wider school improvement planning. We regularly review our Pupil Premium initiatives to ensure they are having a positive impact. Each year we plan priorities for this year’s expenditure based on the cohort of eligible children.

GLF’s Aspiration for All children to Grow, Learn, and Flourish

All GLF Schools are committed to our core remit of providing an outstanding educational experience. Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils is part of our commitment to help all pupils achieve their full potential.

We aim for:

 All children to enjoy their learning, attain high outcomes and be helped to become confident individuals and responsible citizens whilst making excellent progress in all respects;

 All children to benefit from an inclusive ethos, excellent teaching and a broad and balanced curriculum underpinned by strong leadership, in a local school;

 All children to be supported and encouraged to lead healthy and active lives

Accessing the Pupil Premium funding at Merstham Primary School

Funding is allocated to the school based on an annual basis. It is important that if you think your child is eligible for pupil premium support, you must contact the school office for more information. Individual requests for financial support for school-based activities are considered by the Head teacher. Requests can be made via the school office.
