Batchley First Schools Pupil Premium vision and objectives


  • Batchley First School ensures that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of its pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
  • We ensure that the new additional pupil premium funding reaches the 3 groups of pupils for whom it was intended and that it makes a significant impact on their education and lives.

• The Pupil Premium provides additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise standards of achievement and attainment for these pupils.

• The Pupil Premium funding is used to narrow the difference between the achievement of these pupils and the rest of their class.

• The school also uses the additional pupil premium funding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Pupil Premium and others.

  • Pupil premium funding is allocated following a needs analysis, which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.




At Batchley First School we ensure that all teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils. Therefore, the following provision is considered for pupils eligible for the Pupil Premium:


Quality First teaching:

  • As appropriate we provide small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning.
  •  We offer 1:1 support via qualified teachers and teaching support staff.
  • Identified children have access to our Bumble Bee nurture group.
  • Pupil premium resources are also used to target able children on FSM to achieve the expected standard or above at the end of KS1.


Experiences and learning opportunities:

· We feel that it is important to provide our children with a range of learning opportunities and experiences. This may be provided via external agencies or visits.



Tools for learning:

· Where appropriate we acquire effective materials aimed at raising standards particularly in phonics and reading.



School Policy:

The Head teacher and governing body have agreed a policy for Pupil Premium to guide the use of funds and to ensure that it represents value for money.




The Head teacher and leadership team regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies we have put into place for Pupil Premium and report to the Governing Body on its progress and impact
