Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Policy Statement

 

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. The purpose is to help each school boost the attainment of eligible children and reduce the gap between the highest and lowest achievers.

 

It is allocated according to the number of pupils who are currently eligible for free school meals or were eligible in any of the previous 6 years. An allocation is also made for any looked after children or children from a service family.

 

It is for the school to decide how the grant is spent, but we are accountable for how we have used the money to support pupils who are eligible for the funding.

 

The Pupil Premium Policy explains the principles and actions towards this aim, and the strategy outlines what we have spent the money on, and how successful we have been in narrowing the attainment gap.

Below you will find the Pupil Premium Policy which is reviewed by the Governing Body each year.
Below you will find the Pupil Premium Strategy Statements which have been written by the Headteacher,  seen and approved by the Resources Committee and the Governor responsible for Pupil Premium.

Pupil Premium Statement (FSM Ever 6) 2013-2014

 

Pupil Premium Funding is used to tackle disadvantage so we can reach the pupils who need it most.

 

Schools are currently given funding of £953 per pupil for those families registered for FSM – this also includes any child who has been registered for FSM for the past 6 years.

 

Total number of pupils on roll:   208

Total number of eligible pupils: 108

Total amount of grant:              £103,524

 

Our approach is to ensure that school supports children from disadvantaged backgrounds, by providing targeted support where it is needed.  The use of the pupil premium is as follows:-

Last years Y6 cohort had 18 FSM (Ever6) compared to 10 Non FSM.  It also had a high number of SEN children which impacted on the FSM gap.

 

We are aware of the continuing need to challenge the progress of the disadvantaged pupils and will closely monitor their progress this year under the funding being allocated to ensure they make expected or accelerated progress.
