The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals , those looked after by the local authority or adopted children, and the children of armed service personnel.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used and the impact of the funding on pupil progress.
At Stower Provost we aim to ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils. Quality first teaching, with good differentiation, is the first step in fulfilling those needs. Pupils who need more support (or more challenge) will have TA support in class or will be withdrawn for small group activities with a teacher or TA or 1:1 teaching.
Equality and inclusion are at the heart of our school and we aim to ensure that we meet the needs of all our learners at every opportunity.
