Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium at Bowmandale Primary School

We have high aspirations for all the children in our school community and believe that all children should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential. We seek, as a school community, to provide personalised learning opportunities and targeted support to allow every child to flourish. The Governing Body of Bowmandale Primary School will ensure that provision is made to meet the needs of all pupils.

Research tells us that the Mastery approach to learning is an excellent pedagogy for all children, but in particular it has been proven to accelerate the learning of vulnerable children, hence our investment to staff training in this approach. The Growth Mindset approach is also central to our teaching and learning in all subjects, whereby children are given open-ended learning opportunities involving peer teaching and collaborative learning. This has been proven to make a consistently positive impact on learning, particularly for vulnerable pupils. Verbal and written feedback is also at the heart of our pedagogy, impacting significantly on learning and progress.
