Pupil Premium Spending

 Guidance for Early Years

At our school the pupil premium for 2016-17   is   £161,020

                                                         2015-16 was £129,780 


What is it for?


We have been allocated this money to raise standards of achievement for pupils of low income families, service children, those in the care of the local authority and adopted children. We aim to improve the life chances and learning opportunities of pupil premium children.


We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We will also allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged and/or is vulnerable.


For more on our policy for allocating Pupil Premium funding, see the school Charging Policy on the website Policies section.


How do we use it?


We spend the money on resources and support that help children with financial or social disadvantage to:


  • Improve attainment rates and levels of progress
  • Close the attainment gap relative to school averages for non – FSM and non - CLA
  • Have full access to curricular and extra-curricular activities that they might not usually access to broaden the horizons for these children.
