Pupil Premium

What is it?

The pupil premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low-income families. Funding is based on children who have registered for a free school meal at any point in the last 6 years, children that are in care or adopted and children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

 

Why has it been introduced?

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 disadvantaged children and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Whilst schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit we are required to publish this online.

 

For the academic year September 2017 to July 2018 our school received £25,080 of Pupil Premium funding.

 

For the current academic year September 2018 to July 2019 our school will receive £19,800 of Pupil Premium funding. The percentage of our pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is 6.7%.  The national percentage for pupils eligible for free school meals in primary school (Jan 2018) is 13.7%.

 

What are our main barriers to disadvantaged children's progress?

  • Ensuring they all receive consistently high quality personalised teaching and learning.

  • Children's independence, resilience, confidence and vocabulary.

  • Parental engagement and pupil attendance.

  • Access to a wide variety of life experiences and extra curricular activities.

What are we spending our Pupil Premium on this year?

  • Reduced teaching group sizes and teacher/pupil ratios

  • Additional teaching assistant time and targeted interventions

  • Professional development of staff to continue to strengthen learning and raise teaching standards

  • Continuing to enhance digital technology in the classroom

  • Increased access to a wider variety of experiences and extra curricular activities.
