Pupil Premium Grant
The Pupil Premium Grant is an additional amount of funding given to schools by the Goverment for children considered to be disadvantaged. If a child has accessed Free School Meals at any point fromReception Class to Year 6, is a Looked-after child (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority or a child who has ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order, they are entitled to this funding.
Although not classed as disadvantaged, Pupils in year groups reception to Year 6 recorded as an Ever 5 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence are also entitled to an amount of Pupil Premium funding.
We are required to publish online information about how we use this grant. Our funding should be received each September, and will be calculated and received again the following September, using the January school census data.
The attached document outlines our Pupil Premium Strategy to date. This strategy is regularly reviewed to ensure maximum impact. In future our funding will continue to be used in ways that show maximum impact. We will also use the results of research by The Sutton Trust to inform our decision making as they highlight the strategies that are the most effective ways of improving children’s progress and attainment and are cost effective. There will also be benefit for all pupils.
