Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

 The Pupil Premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers. If a child has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years or has been continuously looked after for at least 6 months (LAC) the school receives an amount per head within their budget. This has risen each year to the current amount of £1320 per pupil, with service children allocated £300. Our Pupil Premium Grant is used to support children’s learning in school, to ensure that children who are economically disadvantaged are able to achieve as well in school as all our pupils.

We have a strategic approach to the use of specific Pupil Premium funding and plans are integrated into wider school support. These are monitored and evaluated regularly and in depth data analysis ensures that the correct support and strategies are identified to maximise

progress. We monitor attendance and punctuality and provide nurture activities. We also use the grant to provide enrichment opportunities:  subsidising residential and school trips, accessing focused enrichment opportunities, paying for one term’s extra-curricular club per year, and any equipment required.

The governing body is kept regularly informed through the Teaching and Learning committee ensuring that the school is held to account for the impact of the spending.
