Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

The Government put forward an initiative entitled Pupil Premium that targets extra funding towards pupils from forces families, children in care and those children entitled to free school meals.

Our Principles

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups; this includes ensuring the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged. 
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
  • Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time. 

The range of provision the Governors may include:

  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning.
  • 1:1 support
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through trained TA's or external agencies.
  • The majority of our work through Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations primarily in English and Maths. 
  • Pupil Premium resources may also be used to target more able children to exceed expectations at the end of KS1 or KS2.
  • The Governors of the school will publish information on how they have used their Pupil Premium grant to address the issue of "narrowing the gap" for socially disadvantaged pupils.
