Award for Abbey Primary School

Abbey School received a letter from the Minister of State Schools, Rt Hon David Laws MP, this term to inform us that we had won an award in the Key Stage 2 category of the Pupil Premium Awards 2015. We were praised for our high achieving results in terms of the attainment and progress of children, especially of children who have qualified for the Free School Meals Pupil Premium since 2011, preparing them well for secondary school.

The Government introduced new funding arrangements for schools in 2011. One of the key changes has been the introduction of the Pupil Premium, which is linked to the number of pupils within the school who are eligible for Free School Meals.  Since 2011 theses funds have been allocated to the staffing budget, and used to fund qualified teachers  to provide one to one tuition each week for identified children in English or Maths.
