Pupil Premium

What Is The Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from Reception to Year 11.

The Pupil Premium Grant provides funding for two policies:

  • Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers; and

  • Supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.

This year (2018 – 2019), we received £39 200 (Indicative Report – School Budget Share) in Pupil Premium funding which will be used to:

  • To provide a wide and innovative variety of intervention programmes for identified pupils.

  • To purchase various resources as appropriate to support identified pupils.

  • To provide individual and small group tuition for identified pupils.

  • To create opportunities for rigorous on-going assessment and monitoring of progress/attainment for identified pupils.

Initial projections on Pupil Premium spending for 2017 – 2018 are as follows.

Spending Rationale

Pupil Premium spending for 2017 – 2018 was decided upon after consultation with a wide variety of stakeholders with regards to the main barriers to educational achievement and data analysis by the Senior Leadership Team.

The main barriers identified were as follows:

  • Limited access to computing resources (both hardware and software)

  • Parental confidence in supporting their child(ren) at home

  • Lack of quality reading materials at home

  • Financial constraints with regards to payment for school trips/visits/after school clubs provided by external agencies

  • Financial constraints for musical fees


The impact of our Pupil Premium spending is reviewed on a half-termly basis through Pupil Progress meetings and duly reported as appropriate.
