Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium funding from the Department of Education is given to schools to support pupils who qualify for the funding, such as children who are looked after or are entitled to free school meals, (not to be confused with Universal Free School Meals, which are currently available to all children in Reception to Year Two).

At Parklands, we use the funding to support and challenge the learning of these pupils, with a focus that the children make at least good progress in the core areas. We also use the money to support the well-being of  these children, and therefore use the money to cover the cost of additional curriculum opportunities, such as clubs and trips.

Leaders regularly evaluate the success of this funding in securing the pupil’s academic progress, comparing the outcomes of pupils who qualify for funding to other pupils nationally and within the school, with an aim of diminishing any difference in achievement between the two.
