‘Students eligible for pupil premium funding make as much progress as other students in English and Mathematics’ Ofsted 2014
What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium (PP) is additional funding given to schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the achievement gap between them and their peers. Mr Bassett: email@example.com is the member of staff responsible for Pupil Premium.
Who is eligible?
The funding is available to students:
- who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM).
- who have been eligible for FSM in the last six years (FSM Ever 6).
- who are looked after or in care (LAC).
- who are under Special Guardianship.
- from a Forces background.
- in Year 7 who have not reached a Level 4 in English and Maths at KS2 (Catch up).
The school receives quarterly funding for each of these groups of students in varying amounts. This must be used to support students or remove financial barriers that could be hindering their progress within school. The school is required to keep track of the progress of each student and monitor how the funding is spent.
At present we have just over 160 students who are eligible for PP funding across all key stages. Each group of students has varying levels of need and individuals sometimes require targeted interventions. Every student is monitored and interventions are set in place to deal with any issue preventing the expected level of progress. The majority of interventions are of an academic persuasion.
