Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding
Meeting the educational needs of potentially disadvantaged children

The aim of the Government Pupil Premium is to raise achievement among pupils in the following categories who receive or are entitled to Free School Meals, children in care (Looked After Children) and children with parents in the Armed Forces.

The funding is used to enable an education which will increase life choices for children who fall into one of the three categories above, enabling them to have more choices in further education and later careers. Children will be supported to attain and progress well, reducing any gap between high and low income families.

We have a range of strategies and programmes to support all our children with additional strategies for children identified as being in receipt of the “pupil premium” when they are needed.

Guiding Principles
  • Pupil premium funding is spent on pupil premium (PP) children.
  • Our policy is shared with parents and is available online.
  • All pupils in the PP group must be considered for support to raise attainment or other factors which could lay the foundation for future learning.
  • Consistent high quality support is monitored by the school, avoiding wastage of precious financial resources.
  • Activities are evaluated for impact by the school on a regular basis.
  • Success criteria are set for each child on PP activities.
  • Focussed feedback is given to pupils, through target cards showing a clear way to improve further.
  • Our PP Co-ordinator has a clear overview of how funding is being allocated and the difference it is making to the outcomes for pupils.
  • All our staff are aware of pupils receiving the PP and how funding is being spent.
  • We track the attainment and progress of each PP child on a termly basis as the Individual Assessment Summary (IAS) is produced for parents.
  • We have a range of strategies and each child is considered for each strategy.
  • A Governor is responsible for feeding back to the full Governing Body about the implementation of the PP programme.
