Pupil Premium

North Cave CE Primary School receives a Pupil Premium Grant for each child who is entitled to receive free school meals or who has been entitled over the last six years.

We are required to publish online information about how we use the premium.

At North Cave CE Primary School:

We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils.

We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.

In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.

We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of Pupil Premium interventions at any one time.


The range of provision the school may consider includes:

  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher, higher level teaching assistant or teaching assistant focused on overcoming gaps in learning.
  • 1:1 support.
  • Additional teaching assistant support.
  • Acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards.
  • Subsidising school educational visits.
  • Social language groups.
  • Musical instrument tuition.
  • Breakfast Club.

All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress, moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in Reading, Writing and Maths.

Pupil Premium resources may also be used to target more able children eligible for Pupil Premium support in order  to help them  work at greater depth in their learning.

Our school will publish information on how we have used the Pupil Premium funding to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for socially disadvantaged pupils.

The impact of the funding is closely monitored by the school through an analysis of pupil tracking data. An overview of the impact is presented to the Governing Body at Curriculum meetings and also through the Head teacher’s report.
