Pupil premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for schools to support schools in raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities. Pupil premium funding supports pupils who are currently eligible for free school meals, or have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. It is also for 'Looked After Children' or children whose parents are in the armed forces.

Academic year 2016/17

The pupil premium received was: £219,420

Our Allocation was based on:

  • 166 Free School Meals @ £1,320/pupil = £219,120
  • 1 Forces Child @ £300/pupil = £300

The impact of that expenditure on pupil premium children:

  • All children received specific individual support with core intervention sessions. This targeted provision was successful in enabling pupils to catch up with other pupils if they had fallen behind and for others to accelerate progress further.
  • Attendance for pupils in receipt of pupil premium has risen from 93.89% (academic year 15/16) to 94.2%. The gap between disadvantaged pupils and non-disadvantaged is -0.8%.
  • Enrichment activities have continued to support children in the wider curriculum and to support their talents.

Academic year 2017/2018

Our strategy in respect of the pupil premium allocation for the current academic year, based on the needs of the pupils as highlighted through data, pupil conferences and pupil progress reports and meetings is:

  • To provide additional teaching support especially in reading, writing and maths.
  • Additional learning resources to individual’s specific needs.
  • Opportunities for enrichment through school activities such as art, music and educational visits.
  • To support the welfare of pupils with additional needs outside of academic achievement.

Although the gap is closing in all subjects, pupil premium funding will allow us to close this gap further when compared to in school gaps and national gaps and bring those children in receipt of pupil premium inline with those children not in receipt.

Pupil premium funding enables pupils to take part in all extra-curricular activities and also take advantage of musical tuition.

Forecast for academic year 17/18

155 Free School Meals @ £1,320/pupil = £204,600
