Pupil Premium

Ashburnham Community School is committed to supporting all children to ensure they make expected or better than expected progress. In particular, the school is required to “identify and support pupils who have significant disadvantages so that their progress is maximised” (Ofsted). We strongly believe that all children can and do succeed at Ashburnham, regardless of any obstacle that could prevent such progress. This is partly due to the fact that the school effectively spends Pupil Premium (PP) funding.

We are required to demonstrate and justify how the Pupil Premium money that the school gets is spent wisely. This document will outline how Pupil Premium funding is allocated.

The school aims to strategically spend the Pupil Premium funding in order to close any gaps in attainment. A significant amount of funding is spent on direct academic support to ensure that all children fulfil their potential and make excellent progress in reading, writing and maths by the end of Year Six. In addition, a substantial amount of money is spent on social, emotional and mental health priorities across the school, with the aim of ensuring all children are able to access the curriculum effectively. We aim to ensure all children are able to achieve their best, regardless of personal circumstance.

Pupil Premium Strategy

Narrowing the Gap at Ashburnham: an explanation of how disadvantaged children achieved compared to other children

At Ashburnham, the expectation is that all pupils in the school (excepting those with special educational needs who are unable to access the curriculum) will reach at least at least age related expectations by the end of Year 6 and make excellent progress.

The school receives extra funding to support children who come from low income families (disadvantaged pupils – DP).  The school is effective at ensuring equality of outcomes for all pupils.  We are determined to ensure this continues with successive cohorts of children and we endeavour to achieve this through careful analysis of data, targeted interventions and above all consistent, high-quality teaching.
