Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium Provision

The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It is designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers. Pupil Premium pupils are monitored closely and we utilise the funding to ensure high quality provision to suit individual requirements.

For the academic year 2018-19 Saltwood School received £23,665 in pupil premium funding. This was used as follows:

  • Focused teaching assistant support in class
  • Intervention programmes for underachieving pupils in order to reach their potential
  • Identification of barriers to learning through pupil mentoring and implementation of support strategies
  • Welfare support, for example through social skills groups and counselling
  • Providing funding for extracurricular activities that will support well-being and development of learning, including school trips, Kent Music School lessons, swimming and sports clubs.

This provision helped the children achieve the following outcomes by the end of July 2019:
