Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to schools based on the number of children entitled to free school meals, or those who have been entitled during the previous six years, including children who have been looked after in care continually for more than six months. For details of how to claim FSM please see the bottom of the document.

The Pupil Premium Grant for 2019-20 is £1320 per pupil and the school will receive £44,540 for this academic year (23 pupils).

We aim to spend the Pupil Premium Grant on raising achievement for those children from disadvantaged backgrounds as well as ensuring full involvement of all pupils in school activities. The interventions are research and evidence based or have previously been shown to be successful at the school. Pupil premium funding spending is reviewed throughout the year, with an evaluation of the impact and the new year's funding statement carried out in the summer term (July 2020).

Barriers to learning

Barriers to learning for pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium Grant include:

  • Multiple areas of deprivation: education, income, vulnerability, health, crime, living environment, housing, employment.

Factors affecting children include:

  • Low starting point on entry

  • Split families

  • SEND

  • Lack of parental support and engagement

  • Poor attendance

  • Poor behaviour and attitude to learning.

 Your child may be able to get free school meals and additional Pupil Premium funding if you get any of the following:

  •  Income Support

  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance

  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit

  • Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual       gross income of no more than £16,190)

  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

  • Universal Credit

Children who get any of the above benefits in their own right (ie they get benefits payments directly, instead of through a parent or guardian) can also get free school meals.

Children under the compulsory school age who are in full time education may also be able to get free school meals.
