Pupil Premium Funding

Background

Schools receive additional funding for any pupils who have been eligible for free school meals during the last six years, pupils who are adopted, looked after by the local authority or who are in care and for pupils where a parent serves in the armed forces. This money is known as the Pupil Premium Grant. 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 September 2012 schools are required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium to ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium and the extra support that they receive.

Analysis of data shows considerable improvement in achievement and attainment since the introduction of pupil premium.  Pupil well-being has also improved.


Principles

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups and that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals.
  • We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils that school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil premium will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.

 

Provision

The range of provision staff and governors may consider include:

  • Providing a high level of teaching support in classrooms mainly targeted at pupils needing help in the basic skills to ‘bridge the gap in attainment.
  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher or GTA focusing on overcoming gaps in learning.
  • 1:1 support acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics
  • All our work through pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress, moving children to at least age related expectations in English and mathematics.
