Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium Funding Grant, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Schools also receive this funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months (Pupil Premium Plus) and for children with parents in the armed forces.

The school received a slight increase of funding for this period as two pupils are eligible for pupil premium plus funding. As a result we will be able to continue funding many of the above activities including the extra staffing costs which are used to support Pupil Premium Pupils. We have also been able to offer a staff and parent information session to support a pupil premium plus child with additional needs.

One of the main benefits of the pupil premium is that it enables the school to  continue to employ extra adult support which can be used to directly support the learning needs of pupil premium pupils. RWInc phonics continues to raise literacy standards at KS1 and through the funding we are able to offer extra 1.1 sessions in the afternoon to help pupil premium pupils to pass the phonics screener check. At KS2 the extra funding provides extra adult support to deliver the RWInc Freshstart programme, spelling programme and pixl targeted maths intervention programme.

All children in Key Stage 1 are entitled to receive a nutritious meal at lunchtime under Government legislation. While we strongly support the universal free school meals agenda we hope that the above information which outlines the benefits for pupils entitled to pupil premium funding and also to the school will encourage all those entitled to free school meals to register their child for this. Please enquire at our Office for further information.
