What is Pupil Premium?

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium as a way of reducing the inequalities experienced by disadvantaged pupils in publicly funded schools. This funding (which is currently £1,320 per pupil annually) is given to schools based on the numbers of pupils in receipt of free School meals (FSM) as entered onto the October census. The school’s total Pupil Premium allocation also includes any pupil who has been in receipt of FSM in the previous six years of their schooling (regardless of their current entitlement).

As a school, we plan for and closely monitor the progress of disadvantaged children; using this funding to support their learning and participation in school life. Annually, schools must create a clear strategy statement to detail exactly how they will spend this funding.

The work of the Education Endowment Foundation has been used (along with our Academy values) by our Leadership Team to underpin the strategy and decisions in our Pupil Premium Strategy. The Education Endowment Foundation’s Families of Schools database ensures that good practices by similar schools can be reviewed and shared. We use this to inform our practice.

The challenges that disadvantaged pupils may face will have been exacerbated by the Coronavirus pandemic and we anticipate that this will present an additional challenge to our school community. During this time, we have been highly sensitive to the needs of our pupils and their families. Learning has been supported directly and remotely. Staff have ensured that meals were provided and learning has been accessible at home. Packs were distributed. These included equipment and a range of learning resource.
