The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. The level of the premium in 2011-12 was originally £488 per pupil for pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) and for pupils in care who have been continuously looked after for six months. The Government then decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium from 2012-13 would be extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years. It was increased to £623 per pupil in 2012-13 and to £900 for the academic year 2013-14.
In the academic year 2015-16 we had 17 pupils who qualify for Pupil Premium Funding, we received £23,020, which roughly equates to £1300 per pupil.
The current academic year, 2016-2017 shows a total expenditure of £26,980 with 16 children qualifying for funding. This is approximately £1438.00 per pupil.

Our Pupil Premium money has been used to provide a range of additional support for our children and these interventions have had a significant impact on children’s attainment.
We are delighted with our KS2 SATs results, which show that the school has maintained its outstanding standards. The results reflect the hard work of all staff; excellent partnership working with parents and a determination to ensure EVERY child succeeds.
Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to narrow the gap between pupil groups. As a school we have a very good track record of ensuring that children make good progress, but historically levels of attainment can be lower for some children who are eligible for Free School Meals(FSM) – this is a national trend.
Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. Targeted support is being provided through one to one and small group interventions throughout the school. These interventions support children in knowing where they are and what they need to do to improve their work.
