New data protection regulations
On 25 May 2018 there are some changes to the current data protection regulations called the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). The school regards the protection of personal data relating to children and parents/carers as a very important matter.
On the school website, in accordance with best practice, we have published our updated data protection policy and pupil privacy notice. The pupil privacy notice outlines the pupil information that we collect, hold and share including the lawful basis about how we use this information.
If you would like a printed copy of the date protection policy and privacy notice please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

DfE School Information for Finmere C E Primary School
Education against Hate
We all want our children to live in a safe and loving environment so that they can grow up to become happy, confident adults. You will already know that your children can be vulnerable to risks both inside and outside the home, and will have taken steps to protect them so they can grow, learn and develop to their fullest potential.
Protecting your children from radicalisation and extremism is similar to protecting them from the other harms you may be more familiar with, such as drugs, gangs and sexual exploitation. Please use the link below to learn more:
Key Stage 2 results
In line with the new school information regulations (1st Sept 2012) all schools are required to publish details of their most recent Key Stage 2 results. However to protect the anonymity of the small number of children within the cohort at Finmere CE Primary School, we do not publish this information here, in line with the guidelines issued by the Department for Education. The information is available by contacting the Headteacher, Mrs Tucker, at school who will be happy to provide you with information on the achievements of pupils at Finmere CE Primary School. The governors are pleased to confirm the standards at Finmere CE Primary are in-line with or above the national average.
The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Pupil Premium 2016 - 2017
Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. This funding is a ‘top up’ funding and its purpose is to address the underlying inequalities between children who are eligible for free school meals and other children.
In 2016– 17 funding was calculated on the basis of £1320 for each pupil who had been eligible for Free school meals in the past six years. There is a separate Pupil Premium allowance of £1900 for looked after children in care for more than six months and there is related Service Premium of £300 for children of families in the armed services.
In most cases Pupil Premium is paid directly to schools, allocated to them for every pupil who receives free school meals. Schools decide how to use the funding, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.
Local authorities are responsible for looked after children and make payments to schools and academies where an eligible looked after child is on roll.
All children are individuals and Pupil Premium is used in a wide variety of ways to reflect this. The provision provided includes direct approaches to ‘Narrowing the Gap’ as well as more creative interventions designed to improve self-esteem, confidence and improve skills in communication. Pupil Premium funding impacts the wider school as intervention groups and support groups include other pupils, but it is also important to ensure that the individual needs of Pupil Premium pupils are met.
In 2016-2017 we had 0 pupils who were eligible for Pupil Premium
Pupil Premium 2017 – 2018
This year we will receive Pupil Premium of £1,320 for 1 pupil.
Our aim is to continue to support disadvantaged pupils to close the attainment gap and to ensure that all pupils make good progress from their starting points.
How we will do this
Pupil Premium funding will be spent on:
- Pastoral support for pupils and families
- Promoting liaison with the school nurse team & Bicester Family Solutions
- Subsidising school trips and sports events; ensuring there are no barriers to learning
- Subsidising uniform requirements
- Promoting opportunities to participate in after-school clubs
