Uses of Pupil Premium Funding

The school receives an additional premium for the following children:
- Children whose parent/s are in the armed forces
- Children who receive free school meals
- Children who are looked after *

* Those who are subject to a care order or temporarily classed as looked after on a planned basis for short breaks or respite care.

The term is also used to describe 'accommodated' children and young people who are looked after on a voluntary basis at the request of, or by agreement with, their parents. We refer to these children as "children in care"

Your child may be entitled to a Pupil Premium if any of the following apply.
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
  • Working Tax Credit 'run-on' - the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit


Principles
  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  • Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.

Provision
The range of provision the Governors may consider include:
  • Reducing class sizes thus improving opportunities for effective assessment and accelerating progress
  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning
  • 1:1 support
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through learning mentors, trained TAs or external agencies

All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in literacy and numeracy.

Pupil premium resources will also be used to target able children to make accelerated progress and sustain higher attainment.

The school will publish information on how they have used their Pupil Premium Grant to improve the performance of socially disadvantaged pupils.
