Pupil Premium Information

Pupil Premium Funding and Provision 2015-2016

All schools are allocated a proportion of their funding from central government which is called the “pupil premium”. The main pupil premium funding allocated to the school is based on the number of pupils who currently qualify for Free School Meals (FSM), or have qualified for FSM at any point in the last 6 years. The school also receives pupil premium funding for eligible pupils who are looked after children, children of services families and children adopted after 2005.

The head teacher, staff and governors accept their responsibility for pupils eligible for the pupil premium. All staff are dedicated to ensuring the gap in attainment and achievement closes between those pupils eligible for the pupil premium and all other pupils, and that the school continues to promote a fully inclusive ethos. All staff understand that the pupil premium funding is best utilised when directed at improving outcomes for pupils.

Children’s progress and attainment is tracked and monitored carefully to ensure they achieve their full potential. Regular monitoring and evaluation is key to ensuring effectiveness of expenditure.

Targets for pupils are set in Reading, Writing and Maths and monitoring is a joint responsibility of the class teacher and Senior Leaders and regular assessment data is analysed and acted upon. The DFE also analyse our school data and compare our results to national data. Through our termly Governing Body meeting we report clearly on data for Pupil Premium and a transparent expenditure line is maintained in our financial monitoring so governors can link value for money with impact.

As a school we have allocated the pupil premium to support a variety of strategies to promote emotional wellbeing, encourage parental participation and engagement and raise the attainment of pupils in order to close the gap.

In the academic year 2015-2016 funding for pupils who are eligible for Pupil Premium funding was £33,000. Pupil Premium funding in the year 2015-2016 was allocated to improving outcomes for children, with a focus on writing; developing partnerships with parents; continuing to invest in highly effective pastoral support and supporting the provision of extra-curricular opportunities for eligible pupils.

Pupil premium funding, and those pupils who are eligible for it, remain under constant review to ensure the school combines high impact support and intervention with value for money.
