Pupil Premium Statement

Pupil Premium

What is it?

Pupil Premium is a fund provided by the Government to support children who may be at risk from underachieving.

In 2014, the Government announced that there would be a Pupil Premium for Looked After Children (LAC), or children who have been adopted from care. The amount per pupil is £1900. 

In 2014, the Government announced that there would be a Pupil Premium for children of Armed Forces Personnel. The amount per pupil is £300.

We currently have 3 children who receive the Pupil Premium due to their parent/s being in the Armed Forces. We are allocating this to resources and Teaching Assistant time to 'check-in' with these pupils and the resources can complement and further enhance PSCHE lessons to meet their needs. 

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children who are at a disadvantaged and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle underachievement reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, and to target children that they believe are at risk of underachieving since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the pupils within their responsibility.

We have used The Sutton Trust and Education Endowment Fund Toolkit in order to identify resources to target and address key barriers to learning.
