Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding.

The funding is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), a smaller amount allocated according to the number of children of service families, and an allocation for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more. In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. From September 2012, this information must be published on the school website. Please see below for information regarding how the pupils premium was spent in the last financial year, the impact of this funding, and the plans for future spending.

Pupils were able to access additional support and 1-1 or small group work in order to support learning. Pupils were also able to experience a wider range of activities that they would not normally be able to access.

We are unable to break down the results of progress further by year group or even key stage due to such small numbers and the danger of particular children being identified.

Within the school programmes were led including the use of Catch Up Numeracy in KS2. Pupils within this programme showed increased levels of attainment. Pupils lower down the school benefited from support for early reading, writing and maths skills on a 1:1 basis which led to maintaining steady progress in these areas.
