The Principle of the Funding
The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after (LAC) continuously for more than six months.
The Government has decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium in 2016-17 will be awarded to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years.
A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving or have served in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.
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.
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.
The range of provisions the Governors currently apply Pupil Premium funding to includes:
Additional teaching assistant support in phonics for children who did not meet the required level in the Year 1 Phonics screen
Phonics and Reading resources for KS 1 & 2 pupils
Intervention Spelling Resources for pupils in Years 2-6
Additional support from teaching assistants in the classroom for Literacy and Numeracy (Years 1-6)
Assessment and Tracking Software
1:1 teaching in English and mathematics in KS 2 & KS 1
Enrichment, counselling and Nurture provision for pupils
Delivery of intervention strategies in reading, writing and mathematics in Key Stage 1 & 2
The provisions provided by Pupil Premium are aimed at accelerating progress to at least age related expectations.
