Pupil Premium

 

PURPOSE OF THE PUPIL PREMIUM (FROM DFE WEBSITE)

· The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

· In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

· For pupils from low-income families in non-mainstream settings, it is for the local authority to decide how to allocate the Pupil Premium. For instance it could be allocated to the setting where they are being educated, or held by the local authority to spend specifically on additional educational support to raise the standard of attainment for these pupils. The authority must consult non-mainstream settings about how the Premium for these pupils should be used.

· Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium. From September 2012, we will also require schools to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.

The Pupil Premium for 2015-2016 is as follows:

Pupil Premium for 2015/16 - £128,780

The allocation is used to help support the identified children through:

• Assistant Psychologist – Full time • Reading Recovery Teacher • Subsidising School Journey & transport • Booster Lessons • Commando Joe • 2 Full time (equivalent) Teaching Assistant to deliver Wave 3 interventions & Coordination time for Interventions Manager

The impact of the pupil premium spend will be analysed at the end of the year (2016)
