Pupil Premium


Governors, teachers and support staff in the Federation of Penny Acres and Wigley Primary Schools remain committed to creating a lively, stimulating and hard-working learning environment where individual talents are nurtured and celebrated and where every child, regardless of background, is able to reach their full potential.


Priority aim and vision regarding the use of Pupil Premium.


To enhance and improve the educational experience of children identified as being in some way disadvantaged, to include the three strands of;


  • education (academic progress)

  • enrichment (educational and cultural experiences beyond the core curriculum)

  • engagement (wider participation in school and external community both for pupils and parents)


Leading to an improvement in the learning outcomes for all disadvantaged/vulnerable pupils across school and representation in ALL aspects of school and community life, including school leadership groups and enrichment activities.
