Pupil Premium

We aim to ensure that every child leaves Livingstone excited about learning and determined to succeed. We want to equip them with good Literacy and Numeracy skills, as well as self-confidence and resilience. The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium funding will support us in achieving these aims.

Effective teaching and learning must meet the needs of all pupils in our school.  We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups. This specifically includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are addressed.

We use the Pupil Premium Funding to support children who are in receipt of the grant to enable them to reach their potential both academically and in a wider sense.

We will monitor the impact of this strategy through regular data analysis of children reaching age related expectations and the progress they are making.  We will analyse end of Key Stage SATs results to compare the performance of less advantaged pupils to other pupils.  We will review our pupil premium strategy in March 2017 in order to inform our planning for the next academic year.
