Pupil Premium 2018-2019

Pupil Premium Statement for 2018 ‐2019

Pupil Premium

In 2011

‐2012 The Government launched itsʹ Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school

who are eligible for Free School Meals [FSM]. Money is also available for children who are in care. From 2012

‐2013 it was expanded to include

all children, who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years. It has also been expanded to include children of members of the armed

forces. At present we are receiving funding for approximately 44% of pupils.

This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.

If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the school’s office (in

confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium

funding that may be used to help your child. We also assure parents that all matters regarding use of the Special Fund are treated with discretion

and in confidence.

Principles

 

We aim to ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the individualised needs of all of the pupils.

 

We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially

disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.

 

In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially

disadvantaged.

 

We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to

allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially

disadvantaged.

 

Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited

funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of Pupil Premium interventions at one time.
