Pupil Premium and Sports Grant
At Watergate School we have the very highest aspirations and expectations for all our pupils and recognise that they deserve very best provision. Our Governing Board share our belief that every pupil should have equal opportunities to achieve the best possible life chances, and where no child gets left behind.
At Watergate we make every effort to ensure that disadvantaged pupils receive the outstanding support they deserve and that they make outstanding progress as a result of outstanding teaching and provision.
The Department for Education (DfE) provides additional Pupil Premium Funding (PPF) to all schools based on the number of pupils eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and the number of children who are looked-after (CLA) and the aim of PPF is to support schools in raising the achievement of the most disadvantaged pupils.
At Watergate we acknowledge that it is not the Pupil Premium funding itself that will improve achievement and attainment, but how it is used to support our most disadvantaged pupils. We achieve this through robust and effective planning, assessment and management; governors ensure the efficient management of PPF and this leads to the effective deployment of staff and resources to the benefit of all individuals and groups of pupils.
