PUPIL PREMIUM STATEMENT

WHAT IS PUPIL PREMIUM?

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.

It is particularly aimed at pupils who may qualify of free school meals (FSM) because parents or carers are in receipt of one of the following:

Income Support

Income-based Job Seekers’ Allowance

Income Related Employment and Support Allowance

Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

Grant Element of State Pension Credit

Child Tax Credit.

Working Tax Credit

It also includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure - FSM6).

Nationally Pupil Premium pupils underachieve compared to other (non disadvantaged) pupils. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current inequalities by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

The level of Pupil Premium is currently £1,320 per pupil.

St Peter’s also receives Service Premium funding (currently £300 per child) to support the pastoral needs of children with parents in the armed forces. We use these funds in a variety of ways and are currently looking into establishing a specific book resource to support children with parents on active service and setting up additional pastoral support networks and fun activities for these families.

The Pupil Premium grant for the financial year 2016/17 was £56, 700.  

This funding was used to;

  • provide 1 to 1 tuition for individual children who need extra support in order to achieve their targets or  
  • support emotional needs or
  • fund additional teachers and teaching assistants to support small groups of children or
  • part fund additional speech and language interventions.

We look carefully at every child in our school to provide the best possible education for each one of them, and make every effort to ensure that no child is disadvantaged by his/her circumstances.

We estimate that our Pupil Premium funding for 2017-2018 will be £50,160. We will use this funding in line with our previous success in the various intervention programmes run at school and on additional teachers across the year groups. The grant will also part fund a new school improvement partner to help identify areas in which we could improve support for disadvantaged pupils.
