At the Church of England School of the Resurrection, all members of staff and governors accept responsibility for all pupils, recognising that a significant number of our pupils in the the school, some of whom are not eligible for Free School Meals, may at any point during their school career, require additional support and intervention. we are committed to meeting their social, pastoral and academic needs in a nurturing, Christian environment. as with every child in our care, a child who is entitled to Free School Meals, and consequently the Pupil Premium Grant, is valued, respected and entitled to develop their potential, irrespective of any disadvantages they may have.
The pupil premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. Families whose children are in Foundation stage and Key Stage 1, who are entitled to Free School Meals, will still have to apply, even though they are in receipt of Universal Free school Meals. It is also used for pupils who have been entitled to Free school Meals at one time but no longer qualify. Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.
In order to meet the above requirements, the Governing body and staff of the Church of England School of the Resurrection, will ensure that provision is made which secures the teaching and learning opportunities that meet the needs of all pupils. As part of the additional provision made for pupils who may belong to vulnerable groups, the Governing Body and all staff in the school will ensure that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and clarified at termly pupil progress meetings. In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, the Governing Body and staff of the Church of England School of the Resurrection recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and equally not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. With that in mind, the Governing Body and staff reserve the right to allocate the Pupils Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils that the school has identified as being ' socially disadvantaged'.
The funds are used to provide staffing to support vulnerable and targeted learners, with intervention programs and support in reading, writing and mathematics. The funding is also used to ensure that the pupil premium children are positively impacted not only through academic success but to also break down the barriers for some of our Pupil Premium children, for example poor attendance and punctuality, help to improve self-esteem, self-belief and become aspirational. All our pupil premium children will be fully equipped, smart and feel that they belong and have the same opportunities as all Church of England School of the Resurrection pupils.
