Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 2017-2018

Pupil premium is additional funding provided to schools for supporting more disadvantaged pupils to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children. There are three categories of children that qualify for pupil premium:

  • Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • Looked after children
  • Armed forces children

The school has a large proportion of children who are eligible for pupil premium. For this academic year, we have 121 children which is 55% of the school population.

When making decisions about using pupil premium funding it is important to consider the context of the school and the subsequent challenges faced. Common barriers for FSM children can be less support at home, weak language and communication skills, lack of confidence, more frequent behaviour difficulties, and attendance and punctuality issues. There may also be complex family situations that prevent children from flourishing. The challenges are varied and there is no “one size fits all”.

In 2017-2018, the school received £159,720 pupil premium funding, which was used to provide the respective children with appropriate support to make the expected progress in their learning. The additional support included one or more of the following:

  • To employ four extra teachers to ensure that the class sizes remain as low as possible. = £135,000
  • To fund educational visits to enhance and further develop the curriculum. This includes residential opportunities for all Key Stage 2 children. = £40,000
  • To fund a reduced cost Breakfast Club provision. = £9,000

The total spend is £184,000. This figure is £24,300 above the government allocation.

The respective children’s progress and attainment is tracked and monitored carefully to ensure they achieve their full potential.

The next update of the progress will be in December 2017.
