Kings Furlong Junior School – Pupil Premium Plan 2019-20 Evaluation


The key aims of our Pupil Premium Plan are:

  • To ensure that overall quality of teaching and learning enables our Pupil Premium children to make equal progress with their non-Pupil Premium peers.
  • To ensure that additional support and guidance is given to our PP children in order for them to achieve in line with their non-PP peers, including having access to activities in and after school.
  • To ensure that our PP parents are communicated with and involved with their child’s learning and progress.
  • To ensure that the Leadership of the School articulates a clear vision with expectations on the standard of provision and pupil outcomes for PP children and that this is monitored vigorously and regularly.
