Pupil Premium

PUPIL PREMIUM

 

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. The Government during 2012-2013 decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium  would be extended to pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last 6 years. Pupil Premium funding has increased each year and is now worth £1300 per identified child.

 

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 FSM and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

It is a legal requirement that we publish details of our Pupil Premium allocation outlining the spending of this money and the impact of this spending on the educational attainment of those pupils in respect of whom the funding was allocated.

A more detailed breakdown on the spending and its impact are available from the Headteacher.

Having identified specific barriers to learning the focus has been based around improving basic skills across all year groups. This has enabled individual, targeted support to be effectively and rigorously monitored to ensure that all pupils are making at least expected progress.
