The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Pupil premium funding is available to:
- local authority maintained schools, including special schools and pupil referral units (PRUs)
- voluntary-sector alternative provision (AP), with local authority agreement
- special schools not maintained by the local authority (NMSS)
- academies and free schools, including special and alternative provision (AP) academies.
In the 2016 to 2017 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:
- £1,320 for pupils in Reception year to Year 6
Children who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more also attract £1,900 of pupil premium funding. Funding for these pupils doesn’t go to their school; it goes to the virtual school head (VSH) in the local authority that looks after the child. VSHs are responsible for managing pupil premium funding for looked-after children.
In 2016, our disadvantaged pupils performed in line with, or considerable better than similar pupils nationally.
- In end of Key Stage 2 assessment tasks, disadvantaged pupils made additional progress in reading, writing and maths, compared to non-disadvantaged counterparts.
- A greater proportion of disadvantaged pupils met the expected standard in Reading and Maths compared to non-disadvantaged counterparts.
- The difference between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils diminished.
- Year 1 phonics results for disadvantaged pupils are now in line with national comparison data. This is due to differences being diminished.
THIS CLEARLY DEMONSTRATES THE SCHOOL SUPPORTS THESE CHILDREN AND USES STRATEGIES TO ENSURE THE EFFECTIVE USE OF THE PUPIL PREMIUM.
