Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Please refer to our Pupil Premium Strategy.

Reading and Phonics

At Middle Barton, we promote reading for enjoyment from the first day at school. We work closely with parents to ensure all children are given the tools and disciplines to learn to read. There are daily phonics sessions using the 'Read Write inc' programme to ensure consistency. All children read on a daily basis and use the school library to develop reading for enjoyment. In addition, children are read to within school on a daily basis.

Safeguarding and Child Protection

The Governing Body of Middle Barton Primary School take its responsibility under section 11 of the Children Act and duties under “working together” to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, very seriously. We work together with other agencies to ensure adequate arrangements exist within our setting to identify, and support those children who are suffering harm or are likely to suffer harm. Please read our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy here or visit our Safeguarding information page here.

Special educational Needs and Disability Policy

Children with SEN all have learning difficulties or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn than most children of the same age. These children may need extra or different help from that given to others.
