Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Pupil Premium Strategy 2018-2019
The Government allocates Pupil Premium funding to schools, for children who are entitled to free school meals (FSM). The purpose of the funding is to raise the attainment of FSM students and help to diminish the difference in attainment between FSM and non-free school meal students nationally. From September 2014, these pupils became known as disadvantaged pupils.
Pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years qualify for Pupil Premium (FSM6).
A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
Funding allocation for the financial year 2018/2019 is £74,900
Individual pupil allowance is £1320 per pupil
Objectives in spending Pupil Premium Grant
The focus on expenditure for the Pupil Premium Grant is related to each individual child’s performance and needs in order to diminish the difference. However, support is not simply directed towards these pupil’s academic intervention, it includes provision to build pupil’s social and emotional wellbeing.
The main barriers to achievement
How spending will be allocated to overcome barriers:
Learning and the curriculum:
Parents and families
Social and Emotional Support
Enrichment within and beyond the curriculum
How will we measure impact?
School will produce an impact statement at the end of each academic year that contains a breakdown of funding, its use and impact in all of the above areas. This will be published on the school website.
This strategy will be reviewed annually the next review date will be November 2019
