Pupil Premium Strategy
Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. The funding is based on the number of children eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (Ever 6), looked after children, adopted children and service children.
The Pupil Premium Coordinator at Waterhouses CE Primary is Mr Matthew Dodson (Head of School)
The Pupil Premium Link Governor is Miss Beth Hall.

The Government believes that it is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG), allocated per eligible pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
Schools are required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This is to ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.
Aims at Waterhouses CE Primary Academy
At Waterhouses we have high aspirations and ambitions for all our children, regardless of background and we are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential. We believe that with great teaching and a lot of love and care, every child can develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to succeed to the best of their ability.
How the allocation will be spent:
All our work through pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress, breaking down barriers to learning and improving outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in order to diminish the difference against outcomes nationally.
