Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Report 2016-17

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium funding in April 2011. This grant, which is additional to main school funding, is seen by the Government as the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the children who need it most. The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. School can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. At the beginning of this academic year we had 4 pupils who qualified for Pupil premium. The money we actually receive in our budget is based on our Pupil Premium numbers from April 2015 - March 2016.

Due to the small number of pupils, pupil premium data is not reported on the school website but is reported to governors.


What are our priorities?

Identifying vulnerable children who are at risk of not achieving their potential through removing barriers to learning, either financial, emotional or in terms of gaps in their learning. The following priorities are identified:

  • To ensure that quality first teaching is in place with additional teacher assistant support

  • To ensure Pupil Premium pupils are supported with social and pastoral needs

  • To ensure the attendance of Pupil Premium pupils is line with other pupils to support learning

  • To support the behaviour for targeted Pupil Premium pupils so that it does not impact on their learning

  • To ensure that the expense of extra-curricular activities and trips does not exclude Pupil Premium pupils from taking part
