What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil premium is additional funding provided to schools for supporting more disadvantaged pupils to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children. There are three categories of children that qualify for pupil premium:

At Athelstan Community Primary School, we are committed to ensuring that our Pupil Premium children achieve the best possible outcomes.
We have high aspirations for all the children in our school community and believe that all children should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential and “Be the best that they can be “. We seek, as a school community, to provide personalised learning opportunities and targeted support to allow every child to flourish. We recognise that not all pupils, who are academically or socially disadvantaged are registered for free school meals, we therefore reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil, or group of pupils, identified by the school as being at a significant disadvantage. In order to meet the above requirements, the Governing Body of Athelstan Community Primary School will ensure that provision is made to secure the teaching and learning opportunities and meet the needs of all pupils.
