Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding from the government provided to schools for supporting more pupils from low income families.

This is to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children and that the gap is narrowed regarding their attainment. This also includes those children who have previously been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (Ever 6 children).  Since 2015 the funding now covers nursery aged children.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium funding is spent in a way they believe will be best in supporting the raising of attainment and meeting the social and emotional needs of the most vulnerable children.

Impact

The progress and attainment of PP and Ever 6 children is tracked throughout the year.  Progress is discussed at Pupil Progress meetings and parents are regularly updated on the progress of their child.

Interventions are monitored and evaluated when the intervention ends after a fixed term period and adapted or amended if they are seen to be unsuccessful

Governors are updated termly on how Pupil Premium funding is being spent and the impact it is having on the pupil’s progress.

Focus

Our on-going focus is to continue to narrow the gap between Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium children.
