Pupil Premium Grant - Data Publication

The Pupil Premium is an element of school funding aimed at narrowing the gap in attainment between certain disadvantaged groups of pupils and those who are more well off. Since its inception funding has been allocated on the basis of individual pupils, who were eligible for free school meals, for looked after children in care for more than six months and children whose parents are in the armed forces. In 2014-15 funding was calculated on the basis of £1,300 for each pupil, in 2015 – 16 it rose to £1,320 for each pupil. It is for the schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess the additional provision which should be made for individual pupils.

(Note: information related to individual pupils remains confidential).

We have reflected upon the needs of the   individual pupil and included in our decision making the guidance contained   within the Sutton Report.

Input will be targeted at specific needs of   the pupils;

Objectives:

-            To raise self esteem and feeling of self worth.   Pupil feels able to access Residential visit to Whithaugh (linked to   Outdoors) and meet challenges of climbing, abseiling, orienteering and   kayaking.

-            To embed language and basic skills, linked to   individual pupil targets, enabling pupil to access the whole of the KS2 curriculum.

Notes:  - Data/Information which identifies individual pupils remains confidential and is not reported to governors.

-       Schools decide on the most appropriate way to spend their allocated Pupil Premium– funding is not tied to specific solutions.

-       Governing Bodies are required to report online annually to parents on the impact of Pupil Premium, however schools and governor committees are likely to monitor more frequently as part of the school’s regular assessment process.
