Pupil Premium

 

Pupil Premium Allocation 2018 -19

Overview

Pupil Premium is additional government funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between this group and their peers. Funding is received for each pupil who has been in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) during the last six years, or is, or has been, a Looked-After Child by an English Local Authority (LAC) or a child from a service family. 

For the current academic year, the Pupil Premium Grant is broken down as follows:

FSM                                       £1320

LAC                                        £2300

In 2018-19 our pupil premium grant is estimated to total £14,180 to support 10 pupils, representing 6% of all pupils.


Barriers to Educational Achievement and Pupil Premium Strategy

The majority of our pupils eligible for pupil premium (60%) are working below age-related expectations in reading, writing and mathematics, with none working at greater depth. Our aim this year is to increase these percentages, targeting support in the core subjects.

At the heart of our pupil premium strategy is a whole-school ethos of attainment for all. Quality First Teaching, high expectations and good behaviour for learning are the essential ingredients for not only pupils eligible for pupil premium, but all pupils. For each pupil with Pupil Premium we carefully monitor the quality and success of provision in place for these pupils. All staff are focused on attainment for these pupils, the progress of which is discussed specifically at three pupil progress meetings over the course of the year.

Alongside this, the following provision and support will be put in place for applicable pupils:
