Summary of intended PPG spending 2017 – 2018
Barriers inside and Outside of school

At The Links we recognise that a range of barriers may be faced by children who receive Pupil Premium funding.

Pupil premium funding is targeted for both academic achievement but also to build self-esteem and confidence amongst our children.

Some of the barriers we have identified are;

·         Children having multiple vulnerabilities

·         Lower starting points on entry to school

·         Mental health and well-being of disadvantaged children

·         Lack of equality of experience and opportunity for some children compared to their more affluent peers

Ambitions for Disadvantaged Pupils

·         Early intervention and academic support prioritises disadvantaged

·         Disadvantaged children pupils will meet all targets

·         There will be no difference between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils academically, personally or socially

·         Disadvantaged pupils will have the same opportunities to access learning experiences inside and outside of school
