Pupil Premium Statement

Pupil Premium funding Academic Year 2018-19

Allocation £7240 – 4 children

Pupil Premium is allocated to schools from central Government to support Children pupils from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. Schools are free to spend the money as they see fit and are required to publish this information online.

Even though, at Randwick, we have a very small proportion of disadvantaged pupils children who are eligible for Pupil Premium we are committed to ensuring all our children make the best possible progress. We track the achievement of every pupil on a regular basis and do all we can to make sure each child achieves their potential.

Currently 5% of pupils are eligible for pupil premium. (Funding for pupils is based on the January Census).

Note: given the small number of disadvantaged pupils involved specific costings and progress data are not recorded on the website

What do we want to do?
We want to ensure that no child feels disadvantaged, academically or socially, and that all children have full access to the extended curriculum. We intend to help the most vulnerable children to close the gap with both their emotional and academic needs. We will provide for the whole child recognising the important role additional agencies can provide.
Main barriers to educational achievement?
There are a range of barriers to learning and because of the small number of pupils children eligible here, we cannot give specific details.  However, barriers to learning might include lack of support from home, limited access to language, poor literacy levels, poor attendance, low aspirations, low expectations, narrow experience of life outside school, lack of mobility, lack of money.
