Pupil & Sports Premium
At Chetwynd Junior School, we have high aspirations and ambition for all of our pupils and we believe that all learners should be able to reach their full potential. High-quality teaching is at the heart of our approach, with a focus on areas in which pupils, in particular disadvantaged pupils, require the most support. This is proven to have the greatest impact on closing the disadvantage attainment gap and at the same time will benefit the non-disadvantaged pupils in our school.
Our pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium Funding may face specific barriers, at Chetwynd, we are determined to provide the support and guidance they need to help them overcome these barriers. We strongly believe that reaching their potential is not about where you come from, but instead, about developing the necessary skills and values required to succeed.
In addition to this, we aim to provide them with access to a variety of exciting opportunities and a rich and varied curriculum. Experiences in learning and through the wider curriculum that allow the children to apply both their skills academically and in their wider lives.
Our strategy is also integral to wider school plans for education recovery, notably in its targeted support through intervention and tutoring for pupils whose education has been worst affected, including non-disadvantaged pupils.
Our intended outcome is for non-disadvantaged pupils’ attainment will be sustained and improved alongside progress for their disadvantaged peers.

As of March 2023, 81/92 Year 6 children were able to swim 25m or more using a range of strokes. Children were also taught safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
Swimming is next scheduled for March 2024. Those children in our current Year 6 cohort who did not meet the 25m target will be offered lessons alongside our Year 5 cohort.
