What is Pupil Premium funding?

  • The pupil premium is a new form of funding, in addition to main school funding, to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
  • The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and it is for schools to decide how the funding will be spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. The funding is allocated to schools per FSM pupil and was £900 per child in 2013/14 with a smaller amount for children who have a parent working in the armed services. In 2014/15 the amount is due to increase to £1,300 for FSM pupils and £1,900 for Looked After Children.

Principles

  • Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.
  • New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.
  • From September 2012, schools will be required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.
  • We endeavour to close the achievement gap by ensuring that any pupils at risk of underachieving are identified early and support and interventions are provided for individual pupils. In particular those that are on FSM or Looked After Children. As a school we are committed to personalising provision to ensure all pupils make at least good progress in their learning. We believe that all pupils should be expected to attain at least a good level 4 (at least level 4B) before transferring to secondary school.
