Pupil Premium Funding at Abbeyfield School
The Government recognises that students from families living in economic poverty tend to do less well in school. Pupil Premium has been introduced as additional funding to support these students in school. Children with parents in the Services are also in receipt of funding but we recognise their needs are distinct from students from a disadvantaged background. By disadvantaged, we mean students who receive Free School Meals (FSM); who previously received Free School Meals (Ever 6) and Children who are Looked After (LAC).
At Abbeyfield School we have an aspirational approach to all aspects of Teaching, Learning and life at school and we adopt this focus for our pupil premium students; they are known to us as the IAspire Group.
We have an inclusive ethos and aim to deliver high quality teaching and learning for ALL students. For as long as it is available, Abbeyfield will use this funding to put in place ambitious and aspirational plans aimed at ensuring that disadvantaged students make the best progress they possibly can.
