Pupil Premium




Pupil premium money is funding which targets funds to the benefit of pupils from low income families (those eligible for free school meals). For this year pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years are also included in the allocation.

Pupils who are “Looked after” (in care/fostered) for more than six months and children from service families are also included.


Pupil Premium Funding


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 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 register or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any group or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged
  • Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following the 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 focused on overcoming gaps in learning
  • 1:1 support
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through learning mentors, trained TAs 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 Literacy and Numeracy
  • Pupil premium resources may also be used to target more able children to exceed expectations at the end of KS1 or at the end of KS2
  • The Governors of the school will publish information on how they have used the Pupil Premium grant to address the issue of “narrowing the gap” for socially disadvantaged pupils.

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) Allocation for 2017-2018 was £1620

The Governors targeted the PPG to :-

  1. Provide additional TA support across the school
  2. Provide access to Parent Support Advisor (PSA)
  3. Fund extra resources for reading
  4. Promote positive attitudes to learning
  5. To provide extra TA support to provide interventions to narrow the gap.



Pupils eligible for pupil premium funding at the end of year assessments had made at least average progress in line with national expectations in reading, writing and maths. In most cases pupils had made better than expected progress.



The Government believes that Headteachers and school leaders should decide how to use the pupil premium money within their own schools and are then 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 the inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract pupil premium
  • The reports for parents that school have to publish online.
