Pupil Premium

What is the pupil premium?

In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any time within the last 6 years. In addition, the school receives a sum of money for children whose parents work in the forces or children who are Children in Care or adopted from local authority care.  This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure these pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.

 

Pupil Premium Annual Report 2015-16

 

Total number of pupils on roll (January 2015 census) 128
Total number of pupils eligible for Pupil Premium (January 2015 census) 73
Total amount of Pupil Premium received 2015 – 2016 £65,953

 

The money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or who have been eligible at any time in the last six years (Ever6) as well as pupils who are in local authority care and children whose parents are in the armed forces or have been at any point in the last four years. As schools are best placed to assess the needs of individual pupils, the Pupil Premium is allocated to them to decide how it should be utilised.  The money is allocated to initiatives to ensure these pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.

Not all children eligible for Pupil Premium are low attaining or making poor progress as quality teaching alone can ensure that children make good progress.

 

Objectives of spending Pupil Premium Grant:

 

·         To support children in having good attendance at school

·         To support children’s social and emotional development and to ensure that pastoral support is effective in meeting their needs

·         To support families to become independent and to enable parents to support their children’s learning and development at home

·         To provide firm foundations for all children starting full-time school

·         To accelerate the progress of children who are working below age-related expectations to ensure that a greater proportion of pupils attain in line with their peers (all pupils nationally)

·         To remove social, financial and educational barriers, as far as we are able, for pupils to ensure that all pupils have the best chance of achieving as highly as possible.
