Pupil Premium 2016-17

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

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 from low-income families.

Have you checked whether your child is eligible to receive Pupil Premium Funding?

If you feel that your child may be eligible for Free School Meals, it is important to register for their entitlement as soon as possible. The school office is able to provide all the necessary information.

If your child is currently in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and having a school meal through the government’s KS1 Free School Meals Entitlement, it is still important to register for the Free School Meals/Pupil Premium benefit if you think your child may be eligible. For more information about eligibility or how to apply please visit the Lancashire County Council website.

For every child registered to receive Free School Meals, the school will receive an additional sum of money to help support children in school, this is called the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG). This additional funding begins in the year they are registered and does not end until they finish school here in Year 6.

The school uses this money to provide additional services to support the learning and well being of these children and also increase resources and opportunities for all children with an additional need who attend our school. It also allows the school to ensure all children can access school trips and extra-curricular activities.

Summary of barriers for children receiving pupil premium funding

1) ‘Narrowing the gap’ for children making below expected or working below age related expectations.
2) Supporting children working above age related expectations to make accelerated progress.
3) Supporting behavioural, social and emotional problems.
4) Identifying and helping families to access agencies outside school which can provide support.
5) Providing financial support to ensure every child has access to educational visits.

What is the purpose of Pupil Premium Funding and how will we measure it?

The purpose of Pupil Premium Funding is to ‘close the gap’ between the attainment of our pupils from high-income families and that of our pupils from low-income families.  We look to do this both academically and by offering enrichment opportunities, for example drama sessions, and helping pupils develop their other skills, such as their social and emotional intelligences. Whilst the attainment gap is a straightforward measure, it is far more difficult to measure social and emotional skill development. Much of this evidence will come from interviews with the pupils, where a rise in self-esteem or an increased enthusiasm for school and/or life in general, can be seen.

We will track the academic progress of Pupil Premium children, through data tracking, lesson observations and book looks. We will arrange suitable intervention and evaluate the impact of these interventions.  The Family Support Worker will work with the pupil/family if there is a family issue around the Pupil Premium child.  All monitoring will be fed back to governors.
