Pupil Premium Statement
At Winterslow Primary School, we provide a school culture where all staff are committed to ensuring all barriers to potential are removed and that every child has opportunity to experience success. Our intention is to ensure that all of our pupils flourish, both academically and emotionally, and that all learners have high aspirations for the futures that lie ahead when they leave Winterslow Primary.
What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is additional funding from the Government to help children who are socially disadvantaged to achieve their very best in school.

We use the Pupil Premium Grant in various ways to support the learning and wellbeing of our pupils and to provide additional opportunities who are socially disadvantaged.
Who is eligible for pupil premium funding?
All staff at Winterslow Primary School accept responsibility for narrowing the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.
We ensure that a rigorous and diagnostic approach is made to identifying the needs of our children in vulnerable groups. Provision is regularly monitored and adapted where necessary to ensure the best possible support is received.
We recognise that the wellbeing of our pupils is essential for them to thrive, sparkle and grow.
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.
The Pupil Premium funding we receive from the Government allows us to break down these barriers for children, enabling them to have the same chance in life as everybody else. Barriers that include low confidence and self-esteem, difficulty in speaking and listening, difficulty in reading, writing, maths, financial difficulties, poor mental health or poor relationships with their peers. In order to break down these barriers, we listen to our children as individuals and personalise their learning through effective use of Pupil Premium funding.
The range of provision for this group could include:
