The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to children who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Service Children and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This will also include pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure)
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at their school.
Since September 2012, we have been required to publish online information about how we have used Pupil Premium. Publication ensures that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium and the extra support that they receive.
The impact of our pupil premium strategy is measured in the following ways:
- Through pupil voice; informal discussions when a pupil has received a specific intervention.
- Through parent voice; informal discussions when a pupil has received a specific intervention.
- Through staff feedback following training and within the performance management process.
- Pupil progress meetings are held with class teachers regularly and data is analysed on an individual basis. These meetings are led by the SENCo, Assessment Coordinator and the Headteacher.
- The senior leadership team and SENCo look at a variety of data and tracking information related to individual pupils and act accordingly.
- The governor responsible for PPG meets regularly with the Headteacher to discuss the impact of pupil premium.
