Pupil Premium Strategy

Pupil Premium Strategy at The John Hampden School Wendover

Principles:

  •         We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.
  •         We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups,  this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  •         In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are eligible for free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
  •         We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  •         Limited funding and resources means that not all children eligible for free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at all times.
  •         Provision will not be aimed at teaching and learning for pupils with an EHC Plan as funding for these needs is already in place.
  •         It will be the responsibility of the Headteacher to produce regular reports for the Governing Board about the impact of Pupil Premium Funding.
At The John Hampden School Wendover we support the achievement of Disadvantaged Children by:
  • Ensuring a whole school ethos of attainment for all
  • Analysing data and responding to evidence
  • Meeting individual learning needs
  • Deploying staff effectively
  • Providing high quality teaching for all
  • Addressing issues relating to behaviour, attendance and punctuality
  • Ensuring clear and responsive leadership
