Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to address any inequalities between pupils who are eligible for free school meals and those that are not. Schools allocate the funding each year to provide additional support, intervention and strategies which are designed to improve outcomes for our pupils.
At Springwood, the funding is allocated to additional resources such as: additional staff to support Speech and Language Therapy input, teaching assistants to support the outdoor curriculum, a music therapist and for all pupils to attend educational visits. In addition, we use our Pupil Premium funding to employ Family Liaison Officers who provide support and guidance to all families. For the full information on our current spending plan, please see the documentation below.
In order for the school to access funding, all families who are entitled to Free School Meals need to register. We ask that even if your child is entitled to ‘Universal Free School Meals’ because of their age, or because your child may bring a packed lunch because of dietary requirements, you still apply for the funding to help provide additional support for both your child and others.
