Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is a sum of money that comes into the school’s budget; this sum is in addition to the normal school budget and is calculated on the number of children who receive free school meals.  We have a very small number of children in receipt of free school meals in the school and this number is well below other schools nationally.

 

The Purpose of the Pupil Premium?

The purpose of the pupil premium is to address inequalities and to ensure that no pupil is disadvantaged as a result of their economic position. Schools can decide how to spend the pupil premium based on the needs of the pupils in their care.

Information regarding entitlement to Free School Meals can be found on the link below.

Pupil Premium 2017-2018

The school received an additional premium of £19,380 which will be used to raise standards.

Ways in which this money has been allocated:

  1. To continually raise standards of teaching and learning throughout the school.
  2. To address learning needs: phonics, spelling, grammar and number.
  3. To address social needs of families
  4. To provide enrichment activities: trips, after school provision, after school sports clubs etc.

In making provision for pupil premium children, we recognise that not all pupils who receive pupil premium will be socially disadvantaged.  We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are in receipt of pupil premium.  We do, therefore, at times allocate funding in such a way that we can offer support to children who we feel are in need.

Effective use of Pupil Premium funding is supporting pupil progress and attainment, current school data indicates that any in-school attainment gaps are closing rapidly.  For disadvantaged pupils in 2017 we:

  • Closed the gap in KS2 in reading and maths. 
  • In KS1, disadvantaged pupils achieved in line, or better than, school and national averages.
