Selsdon Primary School is a three-form entry school in South Croydon, providing extended provision from 7.30 am to 6:00pm each day. We have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from but your passion and thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure, and we are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential.

Pupil premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers. If a child has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years or has been continuously looked after for at least 6 months (LAC) the school receives an amount per head within their budget.

This funding is provided to enable these pupils to be supported to reach their potential. Pupil Premium funding represents a significant proportion of our budget and we are committed to ensuring it is spent to maximum effect.
