Background Information

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. The money is allocated based on the numbers of pupils in school who children who have been eligible for free school meals(FSM)  within the last six years or who have left local-authority care (LAC) because of 1 of the following: adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order, a residence order. This funding currently stands at 1,320 per FSM child and 1,900 per LAC child.

Main Barriers to Education Faced by Eligible Pupils in School

Some pupils may:

      become disengaged; they may not attend after school activities or school visits. This can lead to friendship issues and social isolation. Pupil premium funding is used to ensure that no child misses out on extra-curricular activities due to restrictions on family finances.

       lack confidence; they may need encouragement of join in social games during playtime or participate in sporting events. Pupil funding s used to purchase playground equipment and train playground leaders aimed at including less confident pupils.

       fall behind in class. Pupil premium money is used to fund additional TA hours to facilitate small group intervention or 1:1 support for targeted children so that every child in school is able to achieve to the very best of their ability

         have attendance issues or struggle to get to school on time. Pupil Premium money is used to assist families by helping with travel expenses or child care costs in order to get children to school on time.

Impact of Pupil Premium Funding

Impact is measured through regular discussion with targeted pupils and their parents, through pupil progress meetings in school and through teacher assessment. Provision may not always have an immediate impact but should be evident when measured over time. In July 2018 we had 10 Pupil Premium Children in school. Three of these pupils have a Statement of Special Educational Need.
