Pupil Premium Report

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is a sum of money that is allocated to schools to ensure that all children have an equal chance to succeed.  The Pupil Premium funding is determined by:

  • The number of children who are registered for Free School Meals
  • The number of children who are classed as “looked after children”
  • The number of children from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

The money we receive is strictly ring-fenced so it only spent on the children who qualify for it. This is how we are spending the money this year:

This year the school's pupil premium has been committed to provide educational support and intervention through the employment of extra teaching assistant hours.  In addition it has been used to provide out of school activities which pupils would not otherwise have been able to access.

In order for the school to access pupil premium funding, eligible parents must apply to the local authority for free school meals.  This application is necessary even though all infant meals are provided free of charge at present.

A summary of the main barriers to achievement faced by eligible pupils

 

 

Due to the low numbers of children who qualify for the Pupil Premium and the very specific needs of one of these children, we are not publishing this information online, as we do not want to publicly identify which children qualify for the funding.  However, this information is available to relevant parties, such as OFSTED inspectors, on request.

How the grant will be spent to address those barriers and the reasoning behind this strategy

How the impact will be measured

Each of the three pupils has targets set with measurable success criteria.  Progress towards the targets is monitored monthly by the Head of School and termly by governors.

The date of the next review of the pupil premium strategy

The Executive Head, who is an experienced NLE and Pupil Premium reviewer, will conduct a review in March 2018.  Pupil Premium provision will also be a focus of our annual review by the Coventry C. of E. Diocese MAT.

 

 

[1] Based on pupils on roll at the start of the 2017-18 academic year, we are likely to have one ‘looked after’ child and two who qualify for free school meals at the time of the January 2018 census.
