Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is funding that the school receives based on the number of children who are entitled to a free school meal (FSM). Historically, across the country many FSM children make slower progress and attain less well than non-FSM children. The purpose of the Pupil Premium money is to target support and strategies to narrow these attainment and progress gaps.

The DfE states: ‘It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium allocated to schools is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provisions should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.’

For each of these children we recieve £900 and this could be spent on various strategies. These could include for example:

Peer tutoring / Peer assisted learning

Early intervention (including 1:1)

Key staffing targeted at reducing performance gaps

Whole school curriculum activity – such as raising aspirations, booster learning days and broadly giving consideration to how to ensure the curriculum and learning experiences match the needs of FSM pupils in the school
