PUPIL PREMIUM REPORT 2016 - 2017
Pupil premium is additional money which comes into school with a specific purpose. This fund is calculated based on the number of children who are registered for Free School Meals or who have registered for free school meals at any time in their primary education. The amount is £1,320 per eligible pupil. This money is aimed at improving educational standards for more deprived children and closing the gap which statistically (nationally and in our school) exists between their attainment and others.
Schools are entitled to develop and determine their own priorities for using this money but are of course accountable for showing that it has been used for the purpose stated.
We are absolutely committed to ensuring that our Pupil Premium children have the same opportunities as their peers and over their time at our school are supported to close the gap between their academic attainment and their peers.
The allocation in our school for 2016-2017 is £68,640. This money will be spent to support deprived children across the school. Further details are given in the strategy document below but in brief: this will continue to provide a non-class based SENCO / Parent Support worker to support vulnerable families ; a Teaching Assistant to work 0.5 to develop children's social and emotional health; Teaching assistant time for early language development work in Reception and Key stage1; Teaching assistants to deliver specific learning interventions and to enable teachers to spend focused time with pupil premium children; Some additional teacher time to allow for 1:1 or group catch-up sessions; the purchase of a reading comprehension scheme.
