Pupil Premium

At Vicarage Primary School we receive a Pupil Premium Grant for each pupil who are entitled to Free School Meals or for our Looked After Children.

Our aims for the Pupil premium Grant are to diminish the gaps for our socially disadvantaged pupils through focusing on:  

  1. Low and persistent absence as well as mobility factors
  2. Learning difficulties related to SEND
  3. Improving our limited out of school hours provision
  4. Improving the attendance and punctuality of key groups, including boys, mid phase admission and SEND pupils
  5. Ensuring that individual needs are identified and addressed so that the gap between vulnerable groups and others nationally is diminished at a rapid pace
  6. Providing more opportunities for pupils to have extracurricular activities that will enhance their education and promote life skills
