Pupil Premium Summary
Pupil Premium funding is additional funding for publicly funded schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities.
The aim of the funding is to assist schools in closing the gaps between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. Tackling the challenges faced by all children, including our vulnerable children, and giving them the best opportunities possible is key to our teaching and learning ethos at Linton Mead.
We use our pupil premium funding very carefully to ensure our vulnerable children receive the best support possible. Our Ofsted Inspection in September 2016 reported that as a school 'the most able mathematicians now make rapid progress from their higher starting points across the whole school. This includes the most able disadvantaged pupils... Pupils of all abilities are provided with appropriate reading materials and support in lessons across the curriculum' and finally 'the school’s own progress tracking information and outcomes at the end of the most recent school year demonstrate that previous differences between groups of pupils have diminished'.
