Charging & Remissions
Clubs & Payments
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 peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Safeguarding & Child Protection
Albert Pritchard Infant and Wood Green Junior Federated Schools are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Documents section of our website.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural
SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. All schools in England must show how well their pupils develop in SMSC.
Physical Education and sports are constantly evolving at APWG. We aim to make sure that our children
are exposed to the highest quality P.E lessons at all times. The current curriculum is being updated
inline with the new national curriculum guidelines. Please see curriculum maps for KS1 and KS2 and
other information on the links below.
There was once a teacher who gave his pupils some seeds so they could plant, and look after, their very own sunflower. One boy in the class, who loved sunflower seeds, was so excited that he planted the seed and looked after it with great care for many days.
When the first shoot finally appeared, the boy, filled with impatience, went to see his teacher.
-"Can I uproot it yet?" he asked, anxiously.
The teacher answered that he would still have to tend the plant for quite some time before he would be able to collect many seeds from just one sunflower. The boy was disappointed, but he kept on looking after his sunflower.
However, he grew increasingly impatient, and did little else but pester his teacher about wanting to take out the plant.
Despite the teacher asking him to be patient, as soon as the boy saw the sunflower's first seeds, he cut the plant so he could eat them. But the plant was still green, the seeds were not ripe, and of course they couldn't be eaten.
The boy was devastated: He had put so much effort into caring for the sunflower, but in the end he had squandered it all for a simple lack of patience. And he was even angrier when he saw how enormous his classmates' sunflowers grew.
Ultimately, he resolved not to be so impatient in the future, and to listen to his teacher.
Fortunately, he wasn't completely out of luck, and his friends were good enough to share their delicious sunflower seeds with him.
