Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure 2017/18
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils.
Pupil Premium is calculated by the number of FSM children at the school in addition to the number of looked after children, who attend the school, calculated using the Children Looked After data returns. A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils. The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
For 2017/18 schools receive an additional £1320 for each pupil eligible for free school meals. Children who are are in the care of the local authority or who have been previously looked after are allocated the sum of £1900. Children whose parents serve in the armed forces receive a lower amount of £300. Allocation of funding is based on pupils eligible recorded on the January School Census. Funding is received as part of the termly LA funding which runs in line with the Financial year.
- The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils.
- The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers.
- As far as its powers allow the school will use the additional funding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Pupil Premium and others.
- We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it makes a significant impact on their education and lives.
Each school can decide how they spend the pupil premium but will be held to account to show the impact it has had. Please find below a copy of our Pupil Premium Funding Strategy Statement for 2017/18.
