Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for children of statutory school age who are;

  • known to be eligible for Free school meals (FSM)
  • looked after continuously for more than six months
  • children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces

The funding also includes all pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, we are held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support these pupils . From September 2012, we have been required to publish online information about how we have used these funds. This ensures that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium and the extra support that they receive.

Academic Year 2016-17.

We currently have three Pupil Premium children. From April 2016 to April 2017, our school received £5,860. Details of how the money is being spent, is detailed below.

  • 1:1 support in reading and writing and maths to boost progress and attainment.
  • Additional staffing to provide a greater opportunity for 1:1 and smaller groupings in reading, writing and maths.
  • Free after school clubs for pupil premium children.

The impact of these interventions is measured termly through the school’s tracking system. These are then modified to maximise the impact of funding.

In May 2016, there was only one Pupil Premium child who took SATs. In the interests of privacy, the data has not been shown.

The school tracking shows that the other three children are making good progress.

Academic Year 2014-15

Pupil premium money was spent on;

  • 1:1 support in reading and writing and maths to boost progress and attainment.
  • Additional staffing to provide a greater opportunity for 1:1 and smaller groupings in reading, writing and maths.
  • Free after school clubs for pupil premium children.

Analysis of Pupil Premium performance, based on Raise online data from July 2015.

The data compares favourably with school averages and is much better in the main when compared with national averages. It is important to remember that the number of Pupil Premium children in the school is very low and so statistics could then vary wildly.
