Rotherfield Primary School Growing futures

Pupil Premium Impact

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers


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. We seek, as a school community, to provide personalised learning opportunities and targeted support to allow every child to flourish.

As we recognise that not all pupils who are academically or socially disadvantaged are registered for free school meals, we 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 Rotherfield Primary School will ensure that provision is made which secures the teaching and learning opportunities that meet the needs of all pupils.

Our priorities at Rotherfield Primary School for 2017 are:


  • To narrow the gap for those pupils not on track to achieve the expected standard at the end of KS2.
  • To ensure early identification of additional needs and provide high quality interventions to address gaps in learning.
  • To ensure that there is extra adult support to facilitate emotional and social development.
  • To use academic research (Sutton Trust report, Carol Dweck, John Hattie) to make informed choices about the most suitable intervention programmes to use with our children to ensure we are promoting accelerated learning.
