Growing and learning together


Kings Furlong Junior School – Pupil Premium Plan 2020-21


The key aims of our Pupil Premium Plan are to ensure that:

  • Identified barriers to progress and wellbeing are minimised and their effects lessened.
  • The quality of teaching and learning enables our Pupil Premium children to make at least equal progress with their non-Pupil Premium peers.
  • 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.
  • Our PP parents are communicated with and involved with their children's learning and progress.
  • The leadership of the school articulates a clear vision with expectation on the standard of provision and pupil outcomes for PP children and that this is monitored vigorously and regularly.
