Pupil Premium 2015 - 2016

 

Pupil Premium

 

The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. The Premium is designed to help each school boost the attainment of disadvantaged children and reduce the gap between the highest and lowest achievers.

It is allocated according to the number of pupils on roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), a smaller amount is allocated according to the number of children of service families

and an allocation for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (LAC) for six months or more.

In 2012 funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past six years.

 

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. From September 2012 this information must be published on the school website. Please see below for information regarding how the Pupil Premium was spent in the last financial year, the impact of this funding and the plans for future spending.

 

We will continue to use this grant to enrich our children’s experiences to help them become increasingly confident in all aspects of learning and therefore enabling them to achieve and raise their aspirations.

 

The amount of the school’s allocation from the Pupil Premium grant in respect of the current academic year is £137,060.

Impact on children :

The progress and attainment of children who are entitled to FSM will be measured and evaluated each term.

A detailed evaluation outlining the full impact of the Pupil Premium spending will be published

at the end of the academic year.

The funding to our school is as follows :
