Pupil Premium Statement 2014-2015

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, funding for which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the inequalities by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families (who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals) and children who are or have been ‘looked after’ (by the Local Authority) continuously for one day or more.

 Funding for 2014 to 2015

In the 2014 to 2015 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

• £1,300 for primary-aged pupils

Schools will also receive £1,900 for each looked-after pupil who:

•has been looked after for 1 day or more

•was adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005, or left care under:

-a special guardianship order

-a residence order

It has been 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 within their responsibility.

In 2015, at the end of Key Stage 1

7 pupils were in receipt of Pupil Premium. This means that each pupil represents a large percentage. In most areas Pupil Premium children outperformed their peers Nationally and their achievements compared well to the school’s own cohort.

2015 - 2016 PUPIL PREMIUM FUNDING AND EXPENDITURE PLANS:

Last year the school diverted more pupil premium funding to 1-1 and small group teacher support. This had a very positive impact on results and so in 2015 / 2016 a greater proportion of pupil premium funding has been directed to this area of support.
