Pupil Premium

At All Saints we strive to inspire a passion for learning and aim to remove any barriers to success for all of our learners. Within our All Saints family, having high aspirations is a part of our culture for all. Through use of the Pupil Premium fund, we aim to remove any barriers to children meeting their full potential. 

Our ultimate objectives for our disadvantages pupils, which can be found in our Pupil Premium Strategy document, are:

  • For all disadvantaged pupils in school to meet or exceed expected progress rates in order to reach age related expectation at the end of year 6, therefore being ready for secondary school.
  • To continue to narrow the gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils within the school over the next three years.
  • To reduce the number of absences further through continued close monitoring and action in relation to overall attendance.
  • To raise the expectations and aspirations of both these pupils and their families.

When planning how to allocate the spending of the Pupil Premium fund, there are three main areas of focus; teaching,  targeted academic support and wider strategies. 

You can see some of the examples of how we utilise the Pupil Premium fund below:


Targeted academic support

Wider strategies

  • Staff training and continuous professional development for teaching of writing and P.E.
  • Speech and language therapy. 
  • Small group tutoring.
  • Educational materials including books for use in classrooms. 
  • Attendance Lead. 
  • Subsidised trips and residentials. 
  • Pastoral support. 
  • Funded before/after school clubs. 











We also make use of the Letterbox Club run by the Booktrust. This fantastic resources provides home learning packs to support children with Reading and Maths. Each child receives their own colourful parcel of books, maths games, stationery and other high quality materials once every month for six months, usually from May to October. 

The Book Trust identifies key benefits of the Letterbox Club as:

  • Children feel 'remembered' and are excited about receiving their parcels.
  • Carers/families and their children spend more time together reading and playing games.
  • Children read to others and share books.
  • Children have increased confidence in reading and number. 
  • Parcels are delivered despite placement moves and give continuity to the child.
