Pupil Premium at Cove Infant School 

How we support children who receive pupil premium

Cove Infant School is an inclusive school and we work hard to support all children no matter their background. However, we do understand that children who are recognised as disadvantaged can be vulnerable and may need additional support in order to help them be successful in school.

Ofsted and the DfE refer to disadvantaged children as those who are entitled to receive Pupil Premium.

Which children receive Pupil Premium?

Pupil premium funding is an additional payment paid directly to the school for children who are ‘Looked After’ (in care), have been adopted from care or who are entitled to receive Free School Meals. It also includes pupils who have been eligible for free school meals in the last 6 years (Ever6).

There is also a smaller amount of funding for children of service families.

If you think you might fall into one of the categories above, then please speak to the office.  All information is treated as highly confidential.

What is our strategy at Cove Infants?

We strongly believe that all our pupils need to feel safe and happy before they can learn – our priority is their well-being. This is especially true of our pupils who are classed as disadvantaged. 

Children in receipt of Pupil Premium obviously still receive the school’s high quality teaching and learning within the classroom.  There is also the opportunity to have additional one to one and small group teaching based on personalised and individual targets, which further helps the children to make the very best progress they can and to reach their full potential.

The following document outlines our school policy and strategy for children in receipt of Pupil Premium.
