At Greenfield Primary School, we believe that all children are entitled to an education which allows every child to achieve their potential regardless of their starting point in life or personal circumstances. The government believes that the additional funding provided for Pupil Premium children is the best way to tackle those inequalities to enable children to have the best outcomes.
Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is provided to all schools to support pupils within the following categories:

The decision about how the individual schools use their Pupil Premium is left to each school with the expectation that they will close the gap in attainment and progress between those eligible and other children nationally. “It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.” (DfE). Therefore, schools are free to spend the PPG as they see fit. However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support these pupils. Measures are included in the performance tables which capture the achievement of those disadvantaged pupils covered by the grant.
In September 2021, EEF Guide to the Pupil Premium was updated and published by the Education Endowment Foundation. This supports schools in spending their Pupil Premium to maximise the benefit for their students. The report recommends school take a tiered approach to Pupil Premium spending. Teaching should be the top priority, including professional development, training and support for early career teachers and recruitment and retention. Targeted support for struggling pupils should also be a key component of an effective Pupil Premium strategy; as well as strategies that relate to non-academic factors, including improving attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support. As a school we have used the information and research within this report to guide our spending of Pupil Premium money.
At Greenfield Primary, we use funding in a range of ways to support all pupils including those who qualify for Pupil Premium. In September 2021, we moved to the three year plan which is a comprehensive plan of how we will do our best to allow our pupils to meet their full potential. Class teachers and teaching assistants know which children are identified as pupil premium and in termly pupil progress reviews they are a specific focus group. At the end of the academic year we then analyse the impact of any additional support, interventions and strategies used to ensure they provide best value and that progress has been made and use this to feed into subsequent years strategies.
In order to continue to improve provision and raise achievement for all children in receipt of pupil premium funding we have completed the Pupil Premium Strategy Statement 2021 - 2022.
