The government gives an additional amount of money to schools, Pupil Premium, according to certain “deprivation” criteria. This money is intended to support these children in activities that will enhance their learning. At St. Luke's we use this money in a variety of ways depending on the individual needs of each child.
* Payment for school trips and engagement opportunities
* Targeted interventions
* Accelerated Reader and library support
* Food Parcels
* Professional Development
* Pastoral support for children and parents
The impact of Pupil Premium money is tracked termly by our Senior Leadership Team and Intervention Leaders. A provision map is produced to show progress, support received and each child’s provision is changed if required.
Targeted Reading Intervention- Year 3 to Year 5
70% of pupils attending the intervention made accelerated progress from September 2020- December 2020.
