Pupil Premium at Melksham Oak Community School
- Category: Our School
Every school has a duty to ensure that every individual child is given the best possible chance of achieving their potential.
The Government provides Pupil Premium funding, which is in addition to main school funding, to help address national inequalities in terms of the achievement of children eligible for free school meals or children in care. The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based on the number of students who are known to be eligible for free school meals or have been eligible in the last six years and children who have been continuously looked after for more than six months. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what provision should be made for the individual students within their responsibility.
At Melksham Oak we support all of our students. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners. The Middle Leadership Team work alongside the Senior Leadership Team and Governors to ensure that the Pupil Premium provides the best possible support to students that may be at a disadvantage.
