Meridian Primary School continues to receive a Pupil Premium Grant from the government. This is for each child who is currently entitled to a Free School Meal (FSM) or has been entitled over the last 6 years, and for any Looked After Children. We want to ensure that these potentially vulnerable children receive the best support possible and our strategy is underpinned by our school values.
Our key focus is to challenge any inequalities which may exist and close the achievement gap between children who are disadvantaged and those who are not, thereby improving children’s life chances.
Aspirational for each and every child in our school, we work hard to ensure the inclusion of all children and to accelerate progress for our pupil premium children. To this end we strive to nurture the children in our care and use current research and evidence to creatively explore new and innovative ways to support both their social and emotional development and their learning.
