Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. 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 low-income families. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.  

It should be noted that due to the very small number of children eligable for Pupil Premium and thus a need for anominity, specific barriers to learning and tracking for individual children will not be included in this report.  More detailed records are kept in school.

 

Financial year 2019 to 2020:

In the 2019 to 2020 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,320 for pupils in Reception year to Year 6

Schools will also receive £2,300 for each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £1,900 rate.

In 2019/20 our Pupil Premium funding allocation was £7,460.

The main barriers to educational achievement for our Pupil Premium children are social, emotional and economic factors. Children in receipt of Pupil Premium funding are monitored closely every term through assessment, tracking and pupil progress meetings. The money is to be spent on:

  • Providing small group work with experienced teachers, teaching assistants on overcoming gaps in learning1:1 work in core subjects
  • Nurture style groups
  • Subsidising extracurricular visits/residentials
  • Enrichment activities
  • Able, Gifted and Talented opportunities
  • The Football Development Programme
  • Maintaining TA hours so that each class has a TA every morning to work with groups in class and also provide an afternoon of intervention cover shared across all classes

Objectives:

Our use of Pupil Premium funding is a method for closing the gap between the attainment and progress of identified pupils and their peers. This is reviewed termly as a minimum during pupil progress meetings. 

Measuring of impact:

All pupils’ progress is tracked termly by the headteacher and SEND coordinator, with the impact on pupil premium children being reported to governors termly. However, with small cohorts, teachers are able to monitor this much more regularly and build in any necessary intervention straight away.  Disadvantaged pupils are monitored very carefully to ensure the gap is closing.
