Pupil Premium Allocation and Impact

 

What is the Pupil Premium?

 

The pupil premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of:

 

  • raising attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential
  • supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces

The eligibility for receiving pupil premium funding in the academic year 2017 – 2018 is set out below:

  • pupils in year groups reception to year 6 recorded as being in receipt of free school meals in the last 6 years
  • looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority
  • children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order
  • pupils in year groups reception to year 6 recorded as a Service Child in the last 6 years or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence

 

Why has Pupil Premium Funding been Introduced?

 

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 the other pupils in their cohorts by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Whilst schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, we are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium and the impact it is having.

 

Objectives

 

The Pupil Premium will be used to:

 

  • provide additional support to improve progress and to raise standards of achievement
  • narrow and close the gap between the achievement of the eligible pupils and their peers
  • address underlying inequalities between eligible pupils and others 

Strategies

  • The headteacher in consultation with governors and staff will decide how the Pupil Premium is spent
  • The school will assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils
  • The school is accountable for how it has used the additional funding
  • Class teachers and the Senior Management Team will monitor, evaluate and review the impact of interventions provided
  • The Senior Leadership Team will report to the governing body on how effective the interventions have been and the attainment and progress of pupils covered by the Pupil Premium
