Some Pupil Premium interventions

Deputy headteacher Corinne Adams discusses her school’s Pupil Premium work, including some of the specific interventions they have put in place.

An article recently published in The Guardian asked: how should schools spend the Pupil Premium? It pointed out that “understanding the complex problems students face at home (as well as in) the classroom (would) help school leaders to use funds effectively”, and suggested that many schools “have put the funding to effective use by gaining a deep understanding of their students and developing a tailored and personalised approach”. 

This was the most poignant and encouraging point for me.

Historically, national data indicates that students who receive free school meals (FSMs) do not make the same levels of progress as those students who don’t.
