The Government pays schools, including Thames Valley School, a pupil premium for every child who is assessed as disadvantaged.
We must use the pupil premium to help disadvantaged children at Thames Valley School to boost their attainment.
If your family’s income makes your child eligible to receive free school meals, we will receive the pupil premium for your child. We will also receive the pupil premium if your child has been looked after continuously for more than six months. We receive a pupil premium for children who have a parent in the Armed Forces, or whose parent died in service.
Year 7 catch-up premium grant
The Government pays a Year 7 catch-up premium grant for each pupil who did not achieve at least level 4 in reading and/or mathematics at key stage 2 in 2015.
When we receive this grant we invest it in our teaching of literacy and numeracy so as to improve our pupils’ performance.
Primary PE and sport premium
All primary schools in England receive a PE and sport premium as a legacy from the 2012 Olympic Games.
We’ve spent some of our premium on bringing Urban Play Rangers into school.
