Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Policy


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.

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.


  • All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress, moving children to at least age related expectations.
  • Pupil premium resources may also be used to target able children on free school meals to achieve higher levels.


  • A curriculum, under constant review, which is designed to offer maximum flexibility to meet the needs of individuals.
  • Constant staff development and training to ensure that all staff in school are able to provide for each individual child.
  • Access to broad and varied extra-curricular programme to offer experience outside of the classroom to all children.
  • Programmes for specific areas of emotional literacy including: Bereavement, counselling services, Behaviour Support
  • Individual support programmes.
  • Financial support to ensure that children do not miss educational opportunities due to financial hardship i.e. educational visits, residential visits and after school clubs.
  • Providing in school support for children with particular educational needs.
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities through trained TAs or external agencies.
  • Family learning opportunities to raise aspirations of families and children.


The Governors of the school will ensure that there is an annual statement to parents on how the pupil premium funding has been used to address the issue of narrowing the gap for socially disadvantaged pupils. This task will be carried out within the requirements published by the DFE.

The report will include:

  • The progress made towards narrowing the gap by year group for socially disadvantaged pupils.
  • An outline of the provision that was made since the last report.
  • An evaluation of the cost effectiveness in terms of progress made by the pupils receiving a particular provision, when compared with other forms of support
