Pupil Premium - Planned Expendiure 2018 - 2019

The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the past 6 years. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. Please see below for information regarding how the pupils premium was spent in the last academic year, the impact of this funding, and the plans for future spending.

Allocated funding for Pupil Premium in the academic year 2018-2019 is £154,000.

In 2017/8 103 children were classed as Pupil Premium. The majority of these pupils are in Years 4, 5 and 6 with a total of 68 pupils – 38% of the cohort.

This indicates a projected reduction in numbers and potential reduction in funding for 2018-2019.



  • to eradicate any barriers to learning which may be caused by disadvantage
  • to enable all children to achieve their full potential
  • to ensure all disadvantaged pupils perform in line with their peers
  • all enjoy the same entitlements which give equal access to a broad, balanced, varied and individualised curriculum which nurtures individual talent and bespoke areas of development



Impact measures and evaluation reports will be made each term with specific monitoring of data and work scrutiny to ensure disadvantaged learners are being catered for appropriately and effectively. This will include all teachers held to account for the progress data of disadvantaged pupils through half termly data collection and analysis, and through Performance Management targets relating specifically to vulnerable groups of learners.

Pupils’ voice and opinions will be obtained discretely to ensure that all children are accessing their entitlement to extra-curricular activities. This will be reported at the mid-point of the year and actions made in response to this.
