The pupil premium grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It’s a school-level grant that gives schools extra resources to help them meet challenges, including those arising from deprivation.

It’s allocated for schools to:

  • improve the academic outcomes of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities
  • close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers across the country

Funding for 2018 to 2019

Last year we had 8 pupil premium/Ever 6 pupils with an allocation of £13,200.

The pupil premium is allocated to children from families who are currently known to be eligible or have been eligible in the last 6 years for Free School Meals.(FSM) in mainstream schools. 

How it is spent.

We plan how this money will support these pupils and evaluate its impact. The Sutton Trust have produced a report which identifies which kinds of support and interventions are most beneficial and we consider this when taking decisions.

The review process.

Attainment and achievement of children in receipt of Pupil Premium is tracked separately to other pupils, to ensure that expenditure is making a positive difference. The participation of these pupils in extra-curricular activities is also monitored for equal opportunities. The Head teacher and named governor for Pupil Premium compile an annual report for the full governing body giving details of expenditure and impact.
