Pupil Premium

2016/17

Pupil Premium is a grant allocated to schools based on the number of children entitled to free school meals, or those who have been entitled during the previous six years, including children who have been looked after in care continually for more than six months.

To be eligible for Free School Meals, you must be receiving one of the following:
· income support or income-based Job Seekers Allowance;
· Child Tax Credit with an annual taxable income of less than £16,190 (provided you are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit)
· Pension Guarantee Credit;
· income-related Employment and Support Allowance;
· support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.

To claim FSM and therefore enable your child to access this additional support, you need complete an online application.

The Pupil Premium grant for 2016/17 was £1320 per pupil and the school has received £97,680 for this academic year (73 pupils). The grant for 2017/18 is expected to be £85,800 (65 pupils).

We aim to spend the Pupil Premium on narrowing the gap and raising achievement for those children from disadvantaged backgrounds as well as ensuring full involvement of all pupils in school activities regardless of their parent or carer’s ability to pay.

Support and Impact

The main barriers to learning for Pupil Premium pupils at our school tends to be lack of self-confidence, basic skills in reading, writing and maths and focussed support for this learning at home. So we use the funding to provide smaller-sized teaching groups and individualised tuition to address these barriers to learning, as well as social and emotional support to develop pupils’ self-confidence and attendance.

In accordance with our charging policy, we also subsidise school activities to ensure equal entitlement for all.
