Additional Funding at Star
At Star Primary we allocate the Pupil Premium and Sports funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school have identified as being socially disadvantaged. The spending of Pupil Premium and Sports Premium takes into account the specific needs of these pupils and their families alongside the highlighted areas for development of the school.
Through this approach, we aim to reduce the gap in progress and achievement between those entitled to this funding when compared to those who are not. We regularly monitored and evaluated the effectiveness of our provision to ensure that appropriate and prompt provision is made for all pupils who belong to vulnerable groups.
We ensure that outstanding teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils are at the heart of all of our funding decisions. All of our spending decisions are aimed at accelerating progress for these pupils to ensure they achieve a minimum of age-related expectations with the school’s aspiration being higher than this.
We have implemented a range of strategies and initiatives which have had a positive impact as attendance at Star has been steadily improving over the last 4 years.
