What is our vision for Pupil Premium Spend?
The key objective for us when planning the pupil premium spend is to narrow any gaps there may be between pupil groups, for example those eligible for free school meals and those who are not. Our pupil premium spend plan holds the highest aspirations for all in line with our vision.
Many of our children start with low attainment on entry, however we work tirelessly to identify this and ensure through carefully targeted use of the pupil premium funding we work to eliminate barriers to learning and ensure expected and exceeding progress for all.
We are held to account as are our governing body for reporting our pupil premium spend and its impact. Click on the documents below to find out how we spend our pupil premium.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who:
Have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
Have been 'Looked After' for one day or more, including those who have been adopted from care or leave care under special guardianship or residency orders
Are of a Service Family, including those whose parents are now divorced or where a parent has died in service.
Support and early intervention in Foundation and KS1
Literacy and Numeracy support in class, intervention groups and 1-1 tuition as identified at pupil progress reviews.
Funded places at before and after school care
Additional financial support and the provision of resources to meet identified needs.
Emotional Literacy support for children and families through the provision of [FSSW] Family School Support Worker and Emotional Literacy Support Assistants [ELSA].
Funded places for residential, day trip and other extra curricula experiences.
In 2017/18 the Pupil Premium funding is
£1320 per ‘FSM Ever 6’ primary age pupil.
