What is Pupil Premium?

The Government allocates extra money to schools – Pupil Premium Funding - for children from the following groups:

  • all children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • all children who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point  in the last 6 years
  • all children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months by someone other than their immediate family.
This funding is allocated to raise the attainment of these pupils and close any gaps in attainment between Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium pupils. The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding, in addition to main school funding, which schools receive according to the number of children in specific groups.

The government awards this funding to help raise attainment for these children. National data show that as a group, children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in time have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for FSM.

A Service Premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. This is designed to support the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.

It is up to schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, but this funding should be used to support these children. All schools are required to publish, on their websites, what funding they have received and how the money is being used.

How did we use the Pupil Premium Funding 2013-14?

We used the funding of £86,707 to provide a range of support for the Pupil premium children. This support consisted of:

  • We provided subsidized places at our school breakfast club before the start of the school day, to support children and their families.
  • We provided subsidies to enable children to participate in school journeys and trips.
  • Our SENCO provided a range of additional interventions in order for the pupils to achieve their full potential (reading and writing support).
  • We have two additional Learning Mentors who are able to provide further 1:1 or small group work.
  • We bought in support from the reading volunteer service so that we could give 1:1 targeted reading support together with a dedicated teaching assistant.
  • We bought in support from external agencies and specialists in order to meet the needs of specific pupils.
  • We supplied booster sessions at the end of the school day.
