Pupil Premium

 

Principles:

Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to narrow the gap between pupil groups. As

a school we are committed to ensuring that all of our students make good progress and we strive to ensure that progress for many is excellent and beyond.

A significant sum of additional funding has been allocated to the school and we are determined to ensure that it has maximum impact.
At Riverbank Academy:

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.
