The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to underachievement.
- Children entitled to Free School Meals (FSM)
- Ever 6 children (those who have been eligible for Free School Meals at some point during their six years at Primary school)
- Children “looked after” by the Local Authority
- The children of Armed Service Personnel
“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility” (DfE website).
Please contact the school office if you think your child may be eligible for the Pupil Premium.
All schools are required to publish online the following information regarding their pupil premium strategy. Here are our individual school strategies for the current year:
How the impact will be measured:
We review termly progress as part of the school’s assessment calendar. Attainment and PROGRESS of children eligible for pupil premium are compared with the national picture for disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged children. We also compare the pupil premium group with those that are not eligible to identify any further trends or barriers. Governors analyse progress and review evidence each term.
Pupil Premium is a key focus for school leaders (including Governors) to ensure that children eligible achieve in line with their non-eligible peers both nationally and within the school setting.
