Pupil Premium Funding
The Government allocates funding to schools to support raising attainment for specific groups of children, these groups include:
· Children eligible for Free School Meals.
· Children who have a parent who works in the armed forces.
· Children who are in care or adopted from care.
At Meadows Primary School staff and Governors work together to carefully plan how we allocate funding according to the needs of the children.

The Pupil Premium allocation of funds for Meadows Primary School for the financial year is a total of £128,080.00. The Pupil Premium money is being used to employ additional staff including teachers, teaching assistants, Inclusion Manager, and Education Welfare Officer to support children and their families who are entitled to the funding. Timetables and support programmes have been organised to meet the individual needs of children throughout school. Funding is also used for equipment, clubs and visits where there is a barrier to children’s learning.
