Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium Funding – 2017/18

The pupil premium is an amount of extra resources the government provide to support children from less privileged backgrounds. We have a relatively small amount of Pupil Premium funding at Balderstone Church of England Primary School. Last year the school used this funding to contribute to one- to-one and small group tuition for a number of children. We also provided some nurture and well being support for individual children. We tracked their progress and it was felt that the additional tuition and support contributed to continued steady improvement in performance and results. This year we will continue to provide this additional support for children and also use the pupil premium to pay for school milk, extra curricular clubs, school trips and music lessons for individual children.
