Pupil Premium Allocation

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. The Pupil Premium has risen over the last few years nationally, with schools attracting £1900 per 'looked-after child' or £1300 per child who has been able to access free school meals within the last 6 years. 


The government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the pupil premium. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:

-the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers

-the Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium

-the reports for parents that schools have to publish online

Summary of the main barriers to educational achievement

A significant proportion of Pupil Premium children are on the SEN register.

Specific pastoral support is required for individual targeted Pupil Premium children.

Attendance of one Y6 pupil premium child is well below average – 90.8% at end of Spring Term 2017

Our LAC started school below typical age related expectations.


Impact of the funding – 2016-2017

These interventions and activities have had a positive impact in the acceleration of children’s progress and a narrowing of the attainment gap for many pupils in receipt of this funding. This can be observed in in-year tracking data, KS1 and KS2 results.

In the academic year 2016-2017, all children in receipt of Pupil Premium are making above expected progress in all areas due to targeted support from Y6 specialist teacher and targeted interventions throughout the school.
