The Early Yearspupil premium is a Government initiative that provides extra funding aimed at pupils from deprived backgrounds and is provided to support these pupils in reaching their potential by accelerating their progress.
In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, the Governors and staff at Widden Primary School recognise that;
- not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and that…
- not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals
We therefore reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils that the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged.
