Pupil Premium

Introduction

Pupil Premium was introduced by the coalition government in April 2011. The funding is intended to help disadvantaged pupils to ‘close the gap’ and to raise attainment and improve progress.

 

Children who are eligible include:

  • Pupils who have been registered for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years
  • Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months
  • Children of armed services personnel

 

Objectives in spending Pupil Premium:

  • To ensure every pupil premium child makes at least expected progress  at the end of each year
  • To ensure all pupil premium children achieve proficiency at age related expectations at the end of each year
  • To ensure the gap is closed between progress and attainment of pupil premium children and non-pupil premium children

 

Our pupil premium money has been used to provide a range of additional support for our children and these interventions have a significant impact on children’s attainment. Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. Many children start school with low attainment on entry and our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age related expectations as they move through the school.

In 2017/18 we shall continue to spend the school allocation on the delivery of additional pupil support by teaching assistants to ensure that all disadvantaged pupils make good or better progress, especially in reading, writing and maths.  Our Narrowing the Gap leader will continue to improve progress and narrow attainment gaps.

 

We shall also use the funding for effective staff CPD as it becomes available throughout the year.
