Pupil Premium Strategy 2016-17
Overview
Pupil premium is additional funding from the Government, provided to support pupils from low income families to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children.  There are three categories of children that qualify for pupil premium:
  • Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • Looked after children (LAC)
  • Armed forces children
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils for whom they are responsible.

2014-15
For the academic year 2014-15 we have received £37,700 for 29 eligible children. This will continue to be used in a variety of ways to support pupils which include:
  • Using the main part of the funds to continue effective feedback, paying for additional support to allow class teachers to provide 1:1 feedback to children on their progress and next steps
  • Supporting pupils to feel part of the school community: accessing enrichment and extra-curricular activities by assisting with costs.
  • Purchase of additional hours of Nurture Provision support for Pupil Premium children.
Outcomes will continue to be monitored and changes made to suit pupils’ learning needs.

2013-14
In 2013-14 school received £21, 266 for 22 eligible children. This was used in a variety of ways to support pupils which included:
  • A continuation of effective feedback. This year, the main part of the money was used to pay for additional support, allowing class teachers to provide 1:1 feedback to children on their progress and next steps.
  •  Supporting pupils to feel part of the school community, leading to all pupils participating in enrichment activities, like residential visits.
  • Purchase of additional Nurture Provision time for Pupil Premium children.
