At Wolverham, we want all our pupils to be inspired and love learning, to be confident in who they are and to leave us with the skills and knowledge to take on the next step of their school journey. We are committed to ensuring that every individual pupil is given the best possible chance of making excellent progress and so achieve their full potential. We believe that a 'social disadvantage' must not be allowed to be a barrier to a child's future.
Schools are able to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. They are, however, held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families. Schools are required to publish a Pupil Premium Strategy to ensure that parents are fully informed about the amount of allocation, barriers faced by eligible pupils, how the funding is to be spent, how impact will be measured and the when the strategy will be reviewed. information regarding how the allocation was spent for the previous year and its impact on eligible and other pupils must also be evident.
