Pupil Premium Strategy

Pupil Premium Strategy 2017-18 (Click the link below for the full PPG strategy breakdown)

The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools. It is allocated according to the number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals (FSM). A smaller amount is allocated according to the children of service families, and a further allocation is made for pupils who have been ‘Previously Looked After’ or ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more.

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it the most.

In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years. This is known as ‘Ever 6’.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. Measures in the annual performance tables capture the achievement of those pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.

Effect of Pupil Premium on standards and pupil wellbeing 

Please note, actual numbers for eligible children differs from each cohort and is relatively small in each. This can significantly skew percentage figures.
