Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between themselves and their peers. At Wadebridge Primary Academy we ensure that barriers to learning are identified for all pupils entitled to the Pupil Premium, and to use the relevant funding to diminish differences between the attendance, well-being and learning outcomes for this group of pupils and their peers. Wherever appropriate we will ensure that the funding also has impact on those pupils not classified as Pupil Premium. We adopt strategies that will support pupils in their learning and ensure that all learners have access to the resources, challenge and support that they need to make progress in their learning. We are proud to be an inclusive school and this inclusivity is evident within our strategy and in in our everyday practice. In addition, strategies also include those that motivate pupils to learn and inspires them to get the most out of their education.

We are grateful to those parents and carers who apply for Early Years Premium and Pupil Premium funding, as we are aware of the difference this funding makes to the best possible outcomes for all. If you think that your child is eligible for Pupil Premium funding please follow the link on this page, have a look at the pamphlet below or come in to school to discuss it with us.
