At Acton we aim to maximise the progress and attainment of each and every one of our pupils. Our main focus is on supporting pupil learning and we have a commitment to promoting the emotional health and wellbeing of all children.
The Pupil Premium Grant
In 2011-12 the government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools based on the number of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free Schools Meals (FSM) and the number of children who are in care. From 2012-13, it was expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.
Is my child eligible for Free School Meals?
In Acton, Pupil Premium funding is used to diagnose and break down barriers to learning, provide training for staff that allows them to effectively support our Pupil Premium children, provided targeted support sessions focusing on children's areas of development and ensure that pupils reach their full potential, academically, socially and emotionally.
We believe in using interventions and targeted support systems that have shown proven impact both nationally and within our own setting.
Please see our attached documents to note how we have spent the money in previous years and the impact it made and how we are spending the money this year.
