Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium (PP) is additional money that we receive from Government to help raise the attainment of our most disadvantaged pupils to address underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers. Pupil Premium now includes pupils in care who have been continuously looked after for 6 months and any child that has qualified for FSM at any point in the last 6 years - the so called 'ever 6'.

How is this measured?

Performance tables capture the achievement of those pupils covered by the Pupil Premium and details are published on line. 

Monitoring and evaluation

We have organised a wide range of support and extra provision for our PP children depending on the children’s needs. These groups are monitored and evaluations made on their effectiveness.

How much do we get?

Total funding for 2016-2017 was £11060.  Funding continues to support the children as in previous years.  Namely Uniform allowance, milk and fruit subsidies, payment towards school trips, payments towards swimming costs and providing additional teaching assistance support across the school.  These teaching assistants work alongside Classroom teachers to ensure maximum impact and this is monitored to ensure pupils are on track and making good progress.

We have 7 pupil premium children in the following year groups YR-2, Y1-1, Y3-1, Y4-3 and they have made the following progress:

Total funding for 2014-2015 was £7800.  This income is used to provide high quality support and intervention for targeted pupils in order to enhance their learning and achievement.  Additional support continues to be provided for specific areas of the curriculum.  Teaching Assistants work alongside Classroom Teachers to ensure maximum impact and this is monitored rigorously to ensure pupils are on track and making good progress.  Additional support is provided through a team of volunteers who regularly come into class to hear reading and who are able to increase confidence in this group through regular contact and dialogue.
