Safeguarding
The Safeguarding Committee of the FGB has reviewed safeguarding policies in October 2017, mindful of the fact that when the school moves to become part of the Bath & Wells Multi-Academy Trust in 2018 they will be adopting the Diocesan model policies.

Pupil Premium and Equality Information

Freshford Primary School receives additional funding in the form of a Pupil Premium Grant for children who may be at risk of under-achievement. This funding is available for each child who is entitled to receive Free School Meals (or have been so at any point over the past six years), for any Looked After or Post-Looked After Children or for those who have a parent who serves in the Armed Forces. The aim of the Pupil Premium is to close the overall gap in achievement.

The school is required to publish online information about how we have used this Pupil Premium :

2013 – 2014 £3,500
2014 – 2015 £8,300
2015 – 2016 £18,900
2016 – 2017 £19,780

“The support provided by highly skilled and dedicated teaching assistants makes a strong contribution to pupils’ learning in lessons’ OFSTED REPORT JULY 2014

The Governing Body agreed that this sum could be spent in line with the attached break down.

PE & Sport Premium

The school has been allocated a PE Grant which has been used to extend the provision of high quality sports delivery by professional coaches in order to help all children achieve their personal best and equip teachers with the tools necessary to provide similarly high quality coaching in physical education and a range of sports. This forms part of the school’s approach to promoting a healthy lifestyle. We also offer activities which provide children with essential life skills that build resilience, encourage communication skills and team work and instill a belief in their ability to succeed as they move through primary to secondary education and into the world of work.

The school has received the following amounts of PE & Sport Premium Grant :
2013 – 2014 £8,645
2014 – 2015 £8,660
2015 – 2016 £8,640
2016 – 2017 £8,637
2017 – 2018 £8,640

Since receiving the funding for the year 2017 / 18, the school’s PE & Sport Premium Grant has now been doubled for the current academic year. Based on the DfE guidance, we have recently sent out a questionnaire to ascertain the level of swimming competency of our KS2 children and their ability to swim a minimum distance of 25 metres using a range of strokes effectively and to perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations.

We are hoping that Clarendon School will once again be able to accommodate swimming sessions for us from January 2018. These sessions will be used to ensure that our children are equipped with this fundamental life skill, acquire a range of skills to enable them to enjoy swimming and develop a thirst for competing. Clarendon teaching staff have been quick to praise the positive attitude and resilience of our children.

Benefits
The additional provision above ensures that all children within the school, especially those potentially more vulnerable, receive support of high quality support which will help them achieve to their own personal best.

With the benefit of additional support and resources being made available to them, these children are empowered emotionally, socially, spiritually and academically to become more confident learners, able to access all areas of the school’s curriculum.
