Pupil Premium


Mrs Houseman is responsible for ensuring that the Pupil Premium funding is spent appropriately and efficiently ensuring best value and outcomes for the pupils to whom it is allocated.

Michelle Stevenson is the school governor responsible for ensuring that the school abides by it's statutory duties and that the Pupil Premium is used to raise the attainment, progress and life chances of pupils.

We recognise that our pupils in receipt of the pupil premium funding may face specific barriers to achieving our ultimate aims and at Dovedale Primary School we are determined to use our Pupil Premium funding to provide the support and opportunities necessary to help our children overcome these barriers. We do this by ensuring our pupil premium strategy follows these core principles;


We use the latest Education Endowment Foundation Guide to develop an evidence informed approach

Barriers, challenges and successes are identified and measured using a range of information including summative and diagnostic assessment information which identifies needs in different areas including both academic and social and emotional needs.

We have a dedicated pupil premium lead who tracks and monitors all Pupil premium children, offers advice to teachers about intervention and engages with parents.

 High quality teaching is at the heart of our approach- this is proven to have the greatest impact on closing the disadvantage attainment gap and at the same time will benefit the non-disadvantaged pupils in our school.

Staff delivering targeted academic support are given appropriate support and training.
