Pupil Premium Grant

Many children and families in our community qualify for additional funding through the Pupil Premium Grant. This funding is provided directly to the school to support any children who are eligible for free school meals - helping them to access every opportunity offered to their non free school meal peers.

We are aware that there a number of families who do not access or qualify for this grant but experience levels of hardship that make life more challenging. These children and their families are also considered and we ensure that we offer equal opportunities to all our families.

In reflecting on the broader needs of our community and the common barriers to learning  experienced by our children we have recognised the following:

  • some families have limited access to information technology.
  • some families are hard pressed to fund enrichment activities such as afterschool clubs and trips.
  • some families have very busy households and struggle to support children's home learning.
  • some families had poor experiences at school and are not able to support their children's learning at home.
  • some family structures are unsettling for some children and they require support to access school.
  • some families are hard pressed to provide the necessary uniform and equipment children need for school.

The reports below detail how we use the Pupil Premium Grant to support our pupils at Tithe Farm Primary School. The school is currently undertaking a review of this and a revised report for 2016/ 2017 will be published shortly.
