Pupil Premium Funding

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.

Pupil premium funding is available to:

  • schools maintained by the local authority, including:
    • special schools, for children with special educational needs or disabilities
    • pupil referral units (PRUs), for children who can’t go to a mainstream school
  • academies and free schools, including:
    • special academies, for children with special educational needs or disabilities
    • alternative provision (AP) academies, for children who can’t go to a mainstream school
  • voluntary-sector AP, with local authority agreement
  • non-maintained special schools (NMSS), for children with special educational needs as approved by the Secretary of State for Education under section 342 of the Education Act 1992

Pupil Premium Statement

Introduction

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. The premium is allocated to schools for children of eligible school age from low-income families who are: -

  • Currently registered for free school meals (FSM) or have been in receipt of FSM at any time

  • In the past 6 years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure.)

  • Looked-after children and eligible pupils adopted from care or leaving local authority care

  • under a special guardianship or residence order

  • Parents who are currently serving in the armed forces.

  • Early Years Pupil Premium is also available to schools with a Nursery class to support disadvantaged three and four year olds.

    Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, but are held accountable, and must report on how the funding has been used to support these groups of children. Schools are required to publish online information about how the Premium has been used, and what impact it has had.

    The Premium is received on a financial year basis but, reporting is required on an academic year basis.

    At Lealholm we realise that not all children who are eligible for free school meals are socially disadvantaged, and also that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged will be registered for free school meals, be looked after or from service families. Therefore we allocate pupil premium funding on a needs basis where we identify priority groups or individuals. However, the purpose of the funding is to narrow the gap between eligible and non-eligible pupils, so the impact of the  expenditure must reflect a narrowing (and aspirational, closed) gap between those groups of children in terms of achievement.

    Pupil premium is used to help fulfil our vision and aims for all children and provide additional help and support for those children and families, who may, at times, need something over and above our normal level of provision

Pupil Premium Reporting to Parents

Principles

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils
  •  We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
  •  In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
  •  We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
  •  Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time

 

Provision

The range of provision the School may consider include:

  • Reducing class sizes thus improving opportunities for effective AfL and accelerating progress
  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning
  • 1-1 support
  • additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through learning mentors, trained TAs or external agencies
  • All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in Literacy and Numeracy
  • Pupil premium resources may also be used to target able children on FSM to achieve L3 at the end of KS1 or L5 at the end of KS2
  •  The Governors of the school will publish information on how they have used their Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for socially disadvantaged pupils.
