“PUPILS 52 boys and girls, aged 4-11 A teeny-tiny school with just over 50 pupils in three classes – but golly, it’s a good one. A mother emails: ‘When I looked around Llangrove, the children were coming in from break and one handed me a flower on her way past, which was pretty compelling.’ Llangrove is a largeish village (one pub, one school), 15 minutes north of Monmouth in a glorious valley. Deputy head Sarah Dean is, says a mother, ‘lovely and very down to earth’, and there are two ‘fantastic’ male teachers. There’s great focus on good manners (pupil behaviour was rated Outstanding by Ofsted), and strong links with the church and the local community. We’re impressed with the IT provision – lots of laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards in each classroom. Pupils praise the after-school sports clubs, swimming lessons in Monmouth in the summer, theatre trips to Hereford and an annual whole-school expedition – one year they went to Barry Island, which must have been a whole lot of fun.”

Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The ‘Pupil Premium’ was introduced in April 2011. The Government provides additional funding for certain groups of pupils: those who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), children who are looked after and pupils whose parents are in the armed forces. This includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM within the past 6 years (FSM Ever 6).

“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium…is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.” Source DfE website.
