Each year the school receives an amount of money called the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG). This grant provides additional funds to school for each child who is currently, or has been at any time in the last 6 years, entitled to Free School Meals (FSM). In addition, a lesser amount is also given for pupils who are ‘Looked After’ by the Local Authority (CLA) or who are children of Her Majesty’s Forces.
The Pupil Premium totalling £127,500 has been allocated to us in our budget for 2020-2021 financial year. Currently our level of PP is 53%.
At Silver Tree Primary, our aim is to ensure that any difference in attainment between groups of children close and all children achieve well. Whilst our main aim is to raise academic attainment, we also aim to ensure that children have a wide range of opportunities and experiences to develop confidence, self-esteem and have high aspirations.
Our Pupil Premium will be reviewed in April 2021 and July 2021.

The children attended a 6-week period in the Autumn term and were unable to resume their swimming as planned in the final Summer term. Secondary schools are aware of this and the possible need for further swimming sessions during their time in Year 7.
