Pupil Premium

Pupil premium is additional funding provided to schools for supporting more disadvantaged pupils to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children. There are three categories of children that qualify for pupil premium:

• Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
• Looked after children
• Armed forces children

The school received £38,300 for the financial year 2017-18 pupil premium funding, which was used to provide the respective children with appropriate support to make the expected progress in their learning. The additional support includes one or more of the following:

• Working with the teaching assistant in class.
• Receiving extra support and intervention by a teaching assistant out of core lessons.
• Participation in other intervention programmes identified and organised by the SENCo eg spelling or reading programmes.

The respective children’s progress and attainment is tracked and monitored carefully to ensure they achieve their full potential.

What is Pupil Premium

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 free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.
