As a school we believe that all pupils have an entitlement to achieve their potential whatever their circumstances. As a school we will provide opportunities to break through barriers, increase resilience and place inclusivity at the heart of all we do. We are determined that our children should achieve the highest possible standards of which they are capable and that we will continue to provide them with excellent teaching and guidance in order to help them succeed. The leadership of our school will always ensure that all resources are effectively deployed to ensure that every child has an equal opportunity to succeed.

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools and academies to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It was first introduced in April 2011. Since then the amount schools and academies receive has increased. Schools and academies will receive funding based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.
OUR SCHOOL FUNDING ALLOCATION FOR 2020-2021
Rising to the following amounts from April 2021:
The Magdalen Primary School, we aim to improve the academic outcomes of disadvantaged children of all abilities as well as ensuring that their attainment is in-line with that of their peers.
We invest a high proportion of our allocated Pupil Premium allowance on the quality of teaching – we believe as a school, that this matters most. The quality of education that we provide our children, is the biggest driver when we consider the impact of pupil attainment. While we firmly believe that targeted support undoubtedly has its place, we uphold a tiered approach to our spending, focusing first on high-quality teaching, followed by targeted support before moving to whole-school strategies. Using a tiered approach, according to the Education Endowment Foundation, this has shown the greatest amount of impact on children, and at The Magdalen Primary School we adopt this approach to our forward planning of our Pupil Premium spend, which has the potential to impact positively on all pupils.
All members of our school are committed to providing the very best education possible for our children. We work very closely with all of our stakeholders to ensure the children can be the best that they can be by setting high expectations and continually ensuring that children remain safe, secure and are happy. At The Magdalen Primary School, we support all our pupils. We do this by providing high quality teaching, supplemented by interventions for all children including specific targeted interventions for Pupil Premium, as well as targeting the more-abled disadvantaged children.
