Pupil Premium Funding Information
In 2011, the Government introduced Pupil Premium Funding to raise achievement among disadvantaged children. Pupil Premium Funding is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. The Government decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium Funding in 2012-13 was to be extended to pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last 6 years.
We allocate our Pupil Premium funding to various initiatives and provisions to ensure pupils reach their full academic and social potential. We have identified the following potential barriers to education achievement: lack of parental support / restricted range of language / poor school readiness with regard to diet, sleep or space to do homework / low self-belief. Out plan aims to address these areas and reduce these barriers for the children.
In addition, our school objectives in spending our allocated Pupil Premium Grant fund are:
• To fulfil our vision that all pupils have the chance to ‘SHINE’
• To narrow the gap by addressing inequality and raising the attainment of children from low income families.
• To ensure all children make expected progress in Maths and English
• To ensure all children are provided with a range of extra-curricular activities.
Pupil Premium reviews take place in September with a report to Governors in October. This is then reviewed on a termly basis.
