Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 2015-16

The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 for pupils in England from low-income families. It is a sum of money allocated to schools to close the attainment gap between those eligible for free school meals and their wealthier peers. Disadvantaged pupils are pupils that have been recorded as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years (Ever 6 FSM) or pupils in care who have been continuously looked after for more than six months by the local authority.

Objectives for 2015-16

This year we will be continuing with the programs that have had an impact for our pupils with developing learning, confidence or allowing access to activities that would not be possible without funding.

  • In addition we will be funding a phonics club to raise standards in phonics in reception and year 1.
  • A focus area is also raising attainment in Maths and with this in mind we will be training a TA and teacher to deliver success at arithmetic in years 5 and 6, as well as continuing our 1-1 Maths support and running first class @ number.
  • We continue to see the benefits of support for social and emotional wellbeing and the positive impact this has on wider outcomes for pupils and therefore will continue to fund art therapy, me club and mentors within school.
  • To ensure that progress for our More Able Gifted and Talented (MAGT) pupils with access to Pupil Premium funding remains a key focus we will continue to work on the NACE mark award and within this have developed a peer mentor program for reading and Maths between years 2 and 6.
  • Homework club has been well attended and will continue to be funded by Pupil Premium Grant.
