The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
Schools receive additional funding for any pupils who have been eligible for free school meals during the last six years; pupils who are looked after by the local authority or who are in care and for pupils from families where a parent serves in the armed forces. Further details of how the school uses this funding can be found in the document attached at the bottom. PLEASE NOTE this is different than Universal Free School Meals which EVERY child is eligible for up until the end of Year 2.
During the academic year 2015/16 our school received a total of £6600
This money was was used to run additional intervention groups for vulnerable children or children not making expected progress in reading, writing or maths. Some of the money will also be used to buy in resources to support these intervention groups, including reading comprehension resources.
