Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 2016-17 – planned spend for the academic year
 
In 2016-17, pupil premium funding will be at £1320 per student and will continue to be allocated for every pupil registered for free school meals, either currently or at any time in the past 6 years and to any looked-after child. This aims to pick up those families on the borderline of poverty. However, many families who are eligible do not always register for free school meals (FSM); this is an issue for schools. Another upcoming challenge is the gathering of information indicating FSM eligibility in light of universal FSM in KS1. Children looked after receive £1900.
 
According to ‘Pupil Premium 2014 to 2015: conditions of grant’ (February 2014):
 
‘The Pupil Premium for 2014-2015 will include pupils on the January 2014 School Census known to have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in any of the previous six years, as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2014.’ *
 
The school will be allocated £44,880 pupil premium funding for 2016-17 due to having approx. 34 students eligible. 
 
Main Areas of Focus for 2016-2017

  • Close attainment gaps to peers and accelerate progress, in reading, writing and maths.
  • Continue to track the group (pp-eligible pupils) and continue to raise their profile within the classroom and around school.
  • Ensure the most cost-effective spending with maximum output for results.
  • Ensure early intervention for pp-eligible pupils and monitor impact (as above).

 
In 2016-17, we aim to spend the pupil premium funding on the following activities although these will be reviewed throughout the year to ensure the most appropriate and effective use of the funding through the academic year:
