Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. There are a number of different circumstances under which we would be awarded a Pupil Premium grant for your child.

The Pupil Premium funding that the DfE provides is not necessarily intended to be specifically allocated to individual learners and schools have the freedom to decide how it can best be spent to ensure that the maximum number of learners are supported. We consider how to allocate pupil premium money on an annual basis following rigorous data analysis and careful consideration of the needs of the children within this group. This Action Plan for Pupil Premium spending focuses on strategies that impact pupils whose learning is any anyway ‘disadvantaged’ – which could on occasion include pupils who do not receive Pupil Premium. We have a clear, strategic approach to the use of Pupil Premium funding, and plans are integrated into wider school support and improvement systems. These are monitored and evaluated regularly and in depth data analysis ensures that the correct support and strategies are identified to maximise progress. Ensuring all staff share responsibility for Pupil Premium actions enables our school to develop a strong support, leading to improved outcomes for all of our children.
