North Farnborough Infant School is an inclusive school and we work hard to support all children no matter what their starting point. However, we know that some children ,may need a greater level of support in order to help them be successful at school.
The government gives additional money to schools to help children from lower income families to achieve well. This funding is called 'Pupil Premium'.
Families who receive any of the following benefits may entitle the school to receive additional funding:
Funding may also be available if your child falls into one of the following groups:
Why do we need Pupil Premium?
The government provides the extra funding because research shows that the educational performance of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds is lower than their peers. The barriers and challenges these pupils face are complex and varied. It can have a big influence on children's life chances.
Schools can make a difference. By supporting these children and having high expectations of them, schools can break the link between disadvantage and attainment.
What is our strategy at North Farnborough Infant School?
We strongly believe that all of our pupils need to feel happy and safe in order to learn. As well as receiving high quality teaching and learning within the classroom, there is also the opportunity to have additional small group or individual teaching based on individual needs, which helps the children to make the best progress possible. Support may be given to buy uniform, support with the cost of school visits or give emotional literacy support. We tailor our provision to meet individual needs.
