Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium paid to primary schools aims to provide significant funding for disadvantaged children to help close the attainment gap.

Each school can decide how the premium should be used to support their pupils and the money can be spent on any pupils who need additional support. We consistently focus on improving outcomes for all pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, and we are uncompromising in our ambition. Our actions have secured improvement in progress which is rising across the curriculum, including in English and Mathematics.

Governors systematically challenge senior leaders so that the effective deployment of staff and resources, including the pupil premium, secures optimal outcomes for pupils.

Pupil Premium received for Manor Fields Primary School for Academic Year 2015-2016 was £72,550. Manor Fields will continue to use the Pupil Premium funding to support individuals, small groups and the wider school population to ensure each child makes the very best of their time at our school, both academically and socially.
