Pupil Premium 2017/ 2018

What is Pupil Premium and Pupil Premium Plus?

The Pupil Premium ( PP) is funding in addition to the school’s budget and is used by the school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.

It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the last 6 years. Pupil Premium payments are also allocated for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces or have previously served in the last 5 years. ‘Pupil Premium Plus’ (PP+) is allocated to pupils who are ‘Looked After’ (in care) or adopted. Schools are accountable for the ways in which funding is spent for these pupils.

Schools are free to decide how to allocate Pupil Premium funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.

Duties in Relation to PP and PP+

The head-teacher has the responsibility to ensure that Pupil Premium funding is used effectively. It is the head-teacher’s responsibility to ensure that the Governors receive regular reports.

Members of the Governing body will ensure that an annual statement is published on the schools website on how Pupil Premium funding is used to address the issue of closing the gap.

This report will show

  • the progress made towards closing the gap between Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium pupils
  • an evaluation of the cost-effectiveness of provisions in terms of progress and impact on those pupils receiving these provisions
  • a detailed breakdown of expenditure
