Pupil premium

Pupil premium strategy

Please read the information below which gives details of our pupil premium grant and how we allocate the funding.

 

Pupil premium allocation

If you are on a very low income and/or you receive qualifying benefits please register your child for free school meals - eligible by benefit (EBB). Although currently all EYFS and key stage 1 pupils can have a free school meal, registration will attract additional funding (pupil premium) for the school which will be used to support your child.

Please call 01225 394317 or apply online for free school meals.

Please make an appointment with Mrs Batchelor if you would like more information. Alternatively there is more information about eligible benefits, and national and local organisations that offer help and support to parents and carers in B&NES, Bristol and South Gloucestershire Councils, please log on to the 1 Big Database.

 

Impact of pupil premium allocation

We are continually reviewing and reflecting on the progress of our children. This enables us to make provision for those children who are not making the progress we would expect whilst at the same time extending the learning for the children who are making more progress than we would expect. Assessment takes place as part of ongoing class routines and children are unaware that they are being assessed.

Standards are reported to parents as part of our commitment to working in partnership with parents and helping the children move forward in their learning.

Free school meals

From September 2014, all children between the ages of 4 and 7 are entitled to a free school meal during the school day.

You do not need to register your child as we will presume that all children would like a meal unless you tell us otherwise.

However, if you are in receipt of certain benefits such as Income Support, we are able to access further funding to support your child in school. Please see the leaflet attached on this page to see if you are eligible. Please telephone the school office or call the Free School Meals Helpline number t: 01225 394 317 if you have any questions regarding free school meals.

Your child may continue to bring a packed lunch if you prefer but do take a look at our nutritionally balanced menu, as there may be some meals that they would like to try.

Equalities duties

Two Rivers CofE Primary School aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that meets the needs of all children and promotes their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We are committed to equality and reflecting and valuing diversity.

As defined by the Act, as a public authority we must have due regard to the need to:

  • eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited under the Act
  • advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
  • foster good relations between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it

As a school, we also have two specific duties to perform in relation to the Equality Act of 2010:

  • to publish information which shows we have due regard for inequalities as defined by the Act
  • to publish at least one equality objective and report annually on its progress

The Act states that we do not have to report information that may ‘identify’ individuals. Therefore, no staff data is presented here because our staffing numbers are below the threshold of one hundred and thirty.

Local offer for SEND children

Please see Two Rivers' Local Offer which details how our school helps a child with SEND as well as how we can provide support for a family with a child with SEND.

More information can also be found on Rainbow Resource, Bath and North East Somerset's Local Offer.

Parent Teacher Association

We are pleased to let you know that we have formed a Two Rivers Parent Teacher Association.

Andy and Sarah (CoChairs), Phoebe (Secretary) and Dawn (Treasurer).

Part of our role is to develop relationships between the school, parents and others linked to it and deliver activities and resources that will help support the school. We have a wonderful committee, but we are always welcoming more so if you have any questions about getting involved, please ask one of us or send an email to the address below.

pta@tworiversschool.org.uk

 

We are beginning to plan some events for the year and also think about what we can purchase to support the school. If you have any ideas or thoughts, we are keen to hear from you. Some ideas we have are uniform clothes banks, discos, bake sales, movie events and competitions and we are thinking to raise money for art, dance or music workshops, outdoor play equipment or new starter book bags.
