Pupil Premium

Roecroft receives a Pupil Premium Grant from the Government - based on the number of children receiving free school meals, looked after children, or children with parents in service.

The purpose of the pupil premium funding is to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

At Roecroft diminishing the difference between our disadvantaged pupils achievements and their peers is a whole school priority and we are fully committed to meeting the social, emotional and academic needs of all of our pupils. We will ensure that the funding is spent on the targeted groups and has a significant impact on the pupils both educationally and holistically. 

Our Aim at Roecroft is to:

Enrichment Teacher: Mrs Natalie Pateman


My role in school is to support pupils to meet their full learning potential. This is done through a variety of ways including 1:1 and small group intervention. We run a range of programmes in school such as Talk Boost, Sensory Circuits, Sunshine Circles and Brick Therapy. I work alongside Miss Gallagher to develop an effective pupil premium strategy and monitor pupil progress.

How we measure the impact of PPG

Roecroft vigorously tracks the  progress of pupils and monitors attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics to ensure the provision we have put in place is of great impact and cost effective. Provision is carefully reviewed through the use of the Pupil Premium Strategy to ensure the success of the funding received.

We report regularly to the Governing body on how the PPG is used and the impact of this to show our commitment to closing the attainment gap.
