Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England
At Landkey Community Primary School, disadvantaged pupils are given the opportunity to achieve through providing a broad and balanced curriculum. We encourage them to become lifelong learners who discover their passions and their talents and fulfil their potential. Research shows that disadvantaged pupils can face numerous barriers before they begin their school journey and our aim is to remove these.
‘Put simply, a child’s socio-economic background – things they can’t choose like the street they grew up on and how much their parents earn – have too much of an impact on how well they do at school and the choices they have later in life.’ Teach First website
Our ultimate aim is to prevent this becoming a truth for our disadvantaged pupils and providing them with the tools they need to excel.
