Cherry Burton CE Primary School

Pupil Premium Allocation Statement 2017 / 2018


At Cherry Burton School we aim to make sure that every pupil receives high quality teaching and learning experiences that are tailored to meet their individual needs.

We are keenly aware that any pupil who is vulnerable will benefit from additional support and use the Pupil Premium Grant to that end. We recognise that not all pupils who are in receipt of free meals are socially disadvantaged, and, equally, recognise that some pupils who do not qualify for free meals may well be vulnerable or disadvantaged. To this end, the school allocates its Pupil Premium Grant to supporting any pupil, or group of pupils, who will benefit from additional provision or support.

Allocation of Pupil Premium 2017 / 2018 - £18,480
