Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium Funding?

The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

Funding for 2014 to 2015

 

In the 2014 to 2015 financial year, schools will receive £1,300 for primary-aged pupils registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.

 

Schools will also receive £1,900 for each looked-after pupil who:

  • has been looked after for 1 day or more
  • was adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005, or left care under:
  • a special guardianship order
  • a residence order

 

How does the government identify disadvantaged pupils?

The government uses eligibility for free school meals as the main measure of deprivation at pupil level. If you believe your child might be eligible please click here to see the eligibility criteria.

Pupil Premium Statement for 2014 - 2015

The pupil premium is a term used by the government for extra funding which is allocated to schools to support the learning and progress of their more disadvantaged pupils and we are required to publish a breakdown of how it is used in our school on our website. The pupil premium is defined by the Department for Education as: “…additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.”

 

We use these funds in a variety of different ways. These include improving resources, raising standards and the quality of teaching and learning, providing targeted support for individuals and groups of pupils and providing opportunities for pupils that they would not otherwise be able to access. Research shows that enhancing the quality of teaching and learning available to all pupils, and particularly the quality of feedback they receive, benefits the more disadvantaged pupils in particular and helps to narrow the attainment gap between them and their peers.

 

  • In 2014 – 15, the school has 10 pupils (9%) entitled to Pupil Premium funding. Together with some backdated Pupil Premium this generated in income stream of £20,460
  • The money was allocated in the following ways;
  • 96% - Targeted support using increased teaching assistant time for interventions for groups and individuals (including provision of booster groups in Maths and English).
  • 4% - Extended School Support, for example, subsidised educational and residential visits.

The more pupils who are registered for Free School Meals, the more Pupil Premium funding we will receive to help provide additional support for children. If you think your child may be entitled for Free School Meals, PLEASE APPLY, even if your child prefers to bring packed lunch to school. If you have any questions please talk to the School Office.
