Pupil Premium Strategy 2023 – 2026

At Priory CE Primary School, we have high expectations for all pupils in our school,
and believe that with quality first teaching, effective engagement with parents and a
personalised approach to meet children’s individual needs, every child can fulfil
their individual potential, both academically and socially.

In order to do this, we engage in a range of strategies to provide support to
overcome barriers to learning. We provide a rich and varied curriculum, which
contributes to pupils’ outcomes, so that children are engaged and achieve well. Key
interventions and approaches are adopted on a whole school level and are not only
restricted to pupils eligible for the Pupil Premium. Some specific interventions and
school initiatives have been made possible by allocating the Pupil Premium and/or
catch-up funding. Our strategies target the individualised needs of our children in
receipt of Pupil Premium, with the main aim being that these children do as well as
their peers with similar starting points, who not eligible for the Pupil Premium.
School leaders are committed to ensuring that all of our disadvantaged pupils
receive frequent intervention and daily support, alongside emotional wellbeing
support in order for pupils to achieve their potential.

Funding is allocated within the school budget by financial year. The budget enables
us to plan our intervention and support programme year on year, based on the
needs of the current cohort of children in receipt of Pupil Premium funding. When
making decisions about allocating our Pupil Premium Funding, we have analysed
our data thoroughly and have made use of a range of research, such as the
Education Endowment Foundation and The Sutton Trust. Expenditure is reviewed,
planned and implemented by academic year as shown within this strategy plan
