The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant on school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in reception to Year 6. For looked after children the Pupil Premium was calculated using the Children Looked After data returns. A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities for children eligible.

 

Objectives for pupil premium in this school

 

1. The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils

2. The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievements of

these pupils and their peers

3. As far as its powers allow, the school will use the additional funding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Pupil Premium and others

4. We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it makes a significant impact on their education and lives.

The percentage of PP reaching ARE and greater depth will increase over time if strategies are working. For some children remaining at ARE is also a positive achievement. Teachers will meet with the Head teacher and Deputy head teacher following the data analysis where the impact of the PP strategy will be discussed and acted on.
