Pupil Premium Funding 

Thurston CE Primary Academy receives a Pupil Premium Grant for each child who is entitled to receive Free School Meals or who has been entitled to over the last six years, and for any ‘Looked After Children’. We publish online information about how we have used the premium.

We aim for every single one of our pupil premium funded children to make good progress from their starting point to reach at least national expectations in all areas.. We aim for the group to achieve above the level at which all non-disadvantaged pupils nationally achieve. We also want the attendance of our pupil premium funded children to be at least in line with or exceed the attendance of all non-disadvantaged pupils nationally.
We have largely targeted our additional pupil premium funding on:

  • Ensuring we provide first rate quality teaching

  • Targeted intervention where necessary

  • Pastoral care

  • Enriching experiences
