Welford-on-Avon Primary School

Pupil Premium


At Welford School, we have high expectations and ambitions for every pupil, regardless of background. However, pupil premium students are identified and catered for following conversations with teachers about how best to meet their needs. Some of these children need high quality, tailored support but the vast majority benefit from excellence in the classroom.

To ensure this, the school is committed to a rigorous and robust recruitment process for teachers, teaching assistants and midday, only employing staff who will provide the best opportunities for children and dedicated to continuous professional development.

Our SLT identifies training that will continue to provide the best opportunities for pupils e.g. staff have received training around play therapy and dealing with challenging behaviours

The outcomes of the pupil premium students are discussed case by case at pupil progress meetings.
