Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding for schools in England, by the government to support children in receipt of free school meals (FSM) and or when pupils have been in care or are adopted. The intention is to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close/ narrow the achievement gap between them and their peers. At Simon Marks we target our interventions to bring about both measurable academic progress and broader enrichment for the development of the whole child as an inclusive practice. All pupil groups are tracked termly and we match interventions to needs as identified. We recognise needs change over the year and interventions are altered accordingly.

Here are our key aims for the funding which are in line with our whole school development plan:
