What is Pupil Premium funding?
Pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. 

How much is Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium for 2016 to 2017 includes pupils recorded in the January 2016 school census who are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) since May 2010, as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2016. Each child is allocated £1320 annually. 
The pupil premium for 2016 to 2017 includes pupils recorded in the January 2016 school census and alternative provision census who were looked after by an English or Welsh local authority immediately before being adopted, or who left local authority care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order). These are collectively referred to as post-LAC in these conditions of grant. Each child is allocated £1900 annually.

How is our Pupil Premium being used?
Our funding is a key lever in helping to raise the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils. This is done in a variety of ways such as: ensuring high quality teaching and learning experiences, targeted interventions, enrichment experiences, access to a broad and balanced curriculum, staff training and professional development in relation to Pupil Premium funding and access to outside agencies.

How is our Pupil Premium being spent?

Progress:

20% of the school population are identified as qualifying for Pupil Premium and last year 100% of children identified as such made at least good progress in both Y2 at the end of KS1 and in Y6 at the end of KS2. (See tables below). This is comparable with other children in the school.

2013-14

Funding for the current academic year is £81,000. This will be used to enable Mrs Smith to continue to provide high quality support for staff and targeted intervention for identified children. The majority of classes are now seeing children eligible for free school meals making progress similar to that of other children in the school.  

Every class has a Teaching Assistant who provides high quality intervention with children who need additional support. Additional part-time teachers will continue to be deployed to provide support for targeted children and identified areas of the curriculum.

All such interventions are rigorously monitored to ensure children are on track and making good progress with at least 4 points of progress in the year.

2012-13

Funding for the current academic year is £51,600. This will be used to enable Mrs Smith (Deputy Headteacher) to provide high quality support for staff and targeted intervention for identified groups of pupils across the school. Impact will be measured and assessed on a regular basis. Funding will also be used to ensure every class has a teaching assistant who will be trained by school senior leaders to deliver high quality support. Additional part time teachers will also be deployed when areas requiring improvement are identified through rigorous tracking and target setting.

In total this will cost the school more than the allocated pupil premium but we believe that this is a worthwhile investment which will have a positive impact for all our children.  

2011-12

In this year funding allocated to the school was £30,744. Funding was used to provide additional teacher and teaching assistant support for targeted intervention across the school with a focus upon free school meal children. The impact of this was children in years 1-6 made an average of 3 points of progress during the academic year. With a higher level of monitoring and intervention we will be target setting for 4 points in 2012-13.
