Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers . The premium is provided to enable these pupils to be supported to reach their potential. The Government has used pupils entitled to free school meals, looked after children and service children as indicators of deprivation, and have provided a fixed amount of money for schools per pupil based on the number of pupils registered for free school meals over a rolling six year period.

We have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that it is an individual’s passion and thirst for knowledge, and their dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure, and we are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential.

Proposed Spending of Pupil Premium 2016-17

The Pupil Premium provides funding for pupils:

 · who have been in receipt of free school meals (FSM) at any point in the past 6 years

 · who have been continuously looked after for the past six months

 · who are adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 1 or who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order

 · for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces, or whose parent /guardian is in receipt of a pension from the MoD

 Schools are held accountable for the spending of these monies, performance tables will capture the achievement of disadvantaged students covered by the Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Spending 2014-15

In 2014-15 we received £2,600 in pupil premium, we spent this on helping children access music and sport tuition to develop self confidence, concentration, self esteem, listening and communication skills and to learn new skills. We also pinpointed Speaking & Listening as an area for development and so increased the hours of a TA so that she could deliver specific Talk Boost intervention to increase children’s communication skills. We regularly assess the impact of these interventions.

Pupil Premium Spending 2013-14

In 2013-4 we received £1,906 in pupil premium, this was spent on helping children access music and sport tuition to develop self confidence, concentration, self esteem, listening and  communication skills and to learn new skills. Money was also spent on staffing 1 to 1 in order for specific self esteem and confidence issues to be addressed. Impact from this money can be seen through our Personal, Social & Emotional Development achievements being much higher than in previous years.
