Pupil Premium Funding 2015 - 2016 

Pupil Premium Planning and Evaluation 2016

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

Pupil Premium funding for disadvantaged children is £1320 per pupil and Looked After Children will be £1900. The Service Premium remains at £300 per pupil.



The government believes that head teachers and school leaders should decide how to use the pupil premium. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:

• the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers

•the Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium

• the reports for parents that schools have to publish online How schools present the information in their online statement is a matter for each school.

There is certain information that must be in the report: the school’s pupil premium allocation in respect of the current academic year; details of how it is intended that the allocation will be spent; details of how the previous academic year’s allocation was spent, and the impact of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils at the school, in respect of whom grant funding was allocated.



The pupil premium is paid direct to schools, allocated to them for every pupil who receives free school meals or have been eligible in the past six years. Schools decide how to use the funding, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.


Pupil Premium Allocation

Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant was to narrow the gap between pupil groups. As a school we have an excellent track record of ensuring that pupils make good progress, and in the last three years have been successful in bridging the gap in the levels of attainment between FSM and non-FSM pupils.

An amount of additional funding has been allocated to the school and we are determined to ensure that it has maximum impact. Careful analysis of internal and external pupil-level data, historical attainment and progress rates, and huge amount of qualitative data was undertaken to ensure that these funds are used to maximum effect. Our robust self-evaluation procedures guided us in deciding where and how to spend our pupil premium allocation.

We have also used existing researches and publications including those from the OFSTED Good Practice series, and findings of studies undertaken by the SUTTON TRUST to enable us to make decisions relating to provisions.

We have sought external organisations and identified opportunities for children to have an enriched and enhanced experience of the curriculum. Investigative projects in mathematics, artistic and musical performances, sporting experiences are just a few of the curriculum enrichment areas we focused on this year.
