The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced in April 2011. It is an additional funding allocation based on the number of children who are or have been eligible for free school meals in the past six years, the number of children who are Looked After by the local authority and the number of children whose parents are in the armed forces.
The Pupil Premium allocation for 2014-15 was £97,010. This was used to fund the following:
- Inclusion Leader
- Home Liaison Worker
- Extra Teacher/Consistency (Summer 2014)
- Reduced Teaching Group Size/Consistency
- Behaviour Support and Turnaround
- Ed Psych assessments
- Impact evaluation
As an outcome of our effective spending of Pupil Premium Funding over 2014-15, our Pupil Premium children continue to achieve either as well as or higher than our non-Pupil Premium children in end of KS2 SATs in English and mathematics.
