Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding, to help schools close the gap between children from low income and other disadvantaged families and their peers.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, children who have ever been registered for FSM,  children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. There is also a service premium for children whose parents are in the armed forces.

All infants are now eligible for a free school meal so we will be asking parents to fill in a form to show that they are in receipt of certain benefits. Then the school can apply for Pupil Premium funds.

Pupil Premium Strategy 2018-2019

In 2018-2019 our school pupil premium funding is £63,040 this is made up of:

Free School Meals - £48,840

LAC £1200

Post LAC £11,500

Service Children £1500

Barriers to learning for the group of eligible pupils mean that these pupils may need additional support with the following; speech and language development, social and emotional development and maths skills. We also recognise the importance of working with families of eligible pupils, who may require additional support, which is why we provide family support plans and Thrive.

Barriers to learning for Forces children could be due to family deployment and the more than average frequency of moving schools. They have the opportunity to access Benjamin Foundation counselling and Thrive to meet their emotional needs. They can have the opportunity to participate in 1:1 and small group interventions, where appropriate.

Barriers for Learning for LAC and Free School Meal children could include not having the same opportunities as their peers and social and emotional difficulties. They have the opportunity to access Benjamin Foundation counselling and Thrive to meet their emotional needs. They can have the opportunity to participate in 1:1 and small group interventions, where appropriate.

In 2018-19 we will be spending our pupil premium funding on strategies to help eligible pupils overcoming these barriers to learning. These strategies include funding towards staffing costs to organise and run interventions and small group work throughout the year, funding for the Benjamin Foundation counselling service and Thrive support on a daily basis for both pupils and their families. The table below outlines in more detail how we expect to spend the pupil premium funding, the expected impact and how the impact will be measured.

The school will next review the pupil premium strategy in September 2019.

The Education Endowment Foundation evidence refers to evidence based strategies suggested by the Sutton Trust, along with the average expected impact.
