Pupil Premium and Sports Funding

Pupil Premium

In 2016/17 the school received £23,700 pupil premium grant and £300 for Service children.

In 2017/18 the school received £21,120 pupil premium grant and £600 for Service children.

The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to schools and academies to:

  • raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
  • support children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.

It was first introduced in April 2011.  Since then the amount schools and academies receive has increased.  Schools and academies will receive funding based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (Ever6).

FUNDING ALLOCATION
  • £1,320 for each eligible primary aged pupil.
  • £1,900 for each Looked After Child.
  • £300 for each Service Child.

The Department for Education has clear expectations how the Pupil Premium Grant may be spent:

  • for the purposes of the school, ie, for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school;
  • for the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies;
  • on community facilities, eg, services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated.

The grant does not have to be completely spent by schools in the financial year beginning 1 April 2015; some or all of it may be carried forward to future financial years.

 

In  2016/17 the pupil premium has been allocated on the following:

  • Specialist TA to cater for the vulnerable pupils in the school.  Other TAs responsible for Pupil Premium / Vulnerable children.
  • TAs to deliver interventions with children.
  • Better Reading Partners - Specific reading intervention delivered by STA and volunteers.
  • Intervention Groups to support phonics and writing.
  • Developing SMART values to support lifelong learning.
  • Providing extra-curricular activities for vulnerable pupils.
  • Providing enrichment activities for vulnerable pupils.
  • Ensure all pupils are working towards the school’s values and ethos (Aspire Curriculum)
  • Breakfast club.
