With the announcement of this year’s Pupil Premium Awards finalists this week, it’s been wonderful to see all the different ways this funding can have a real impact on a student’s life. We’d like to say a big well done to all the schools who have been shortlisted! You can see the list here.
Inspired by the creativity of teachers, we wanted to share with you how some schools have put Pupil Premium to work:
- Buying PE kit and a pair of trainers for a student to enable her to take part in after-school sports clubs
- Free breakfast club to make sure children would start the day with healthy, full stomachs
- Lending a bike to a student who was always late to enable him to get into school on time
We’d love to hear your stories and ideas on how Pupil Premium can be used to make a difference in a pupil’s life in the comments below!
P.S. Did you know that Pupil Premium funding can be used to buy DoodleMaths licenses for your school?
