Menston Primary School

Making our world a better place

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are or have been entitled to free school meals within the last six years, those looked after by the local authority, children adopted from care and children of armed services personnel.

Our aim is to narrow the gap in attainment and educational opportunity between those children attracting pupil premium funding and their peers.

How will we know that the funding is having an impact?

Intervention, academic or pastoral, is measured in pupil progress meetings at least termly.

Our tracking systems ensure that children’s progress is monitored carefully and that provision matches individual need at any given point in time.

We strive for all children to reach their full potential and we are confident that staff members know and understand our children well. Children’s social and emotional development is a key aspect of the school’s work and we place high importance on empowering children to become confident learners who can manage risks and challenges in a positive way.

Announcements

In line with the government directive, as of Monday 23rd March until further notice, Menston Primary School will be open as a childcare facility to our school’s key worker children and children that fall into the vulnerable category for those times when they cannot be safely cared for at home. Department for Education advice is that if it is at all possible for children to be at home then they should be. For any children registered for childcare, please report all absences to the school office before 9am. We have a 24 hour absence line 01943 873180 where you can leave a message to let us know what the reason for absence is. You must not send any children in if they are displaying the symptoms of Covid-19 which include a new, persistent cough and/ or a high temperature. If your child has sickness or diarrhoea they must be kept off school for 48 hours after the last bout of illness.
