What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. The Pupil Premium Grant is a significant amount of money for many schools, with schools attracting £1900 per 'looked-after child' or £1320 per child who has been able to access free school meals within the last 6 years.
Pupils from Service families also attract Pupil Premium funding at the level of £300 per child. This money is to be used to support pupils’ pastoral needs, for example during times of parental deployment or during a move to, or away from, our school.
The Government believes that Headteachers and school leaders should decide how to use the Pupil Premium. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:
-the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers
-the Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium
-the reports for parents that schools have to publish online.
The funding is designed to support the progress of pupils who are in receipt of or have been in receipt of Free School Meals.
Looked After Pupils are also entitled to this funding. Click on the link below for the DFE recommended template to show our intentions on how this money is spent during this financial year and its impact.
What cannot be measured is the impact our efforts have had on developing the self-esteem of our pupils which is a key factor in the progress of anyone regardless of ability or social situation.
