Pupil Premium

07 May 2019

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in mainstream schools and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. The extra grant is to ensure that any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and other pupils are narrowed.

A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

The Secretary of State for Education lays down the following terms and conditions on which assistance is given in relation to the pupil premium grant (PPG) payable to schools and local authorities for the financial year beginning 1 April 2015.

The Pupil Premium Grant provides funding for two policies:

  • raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers.
  • supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.

Our Principles: At Fountains CE Primary School

  • We strive to ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups. This includes ensuring that the needs of potentially socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • In making this provision, it is important that other students can also benefit from this additional funding where possible.

How much funding does the school get?

The PPG per pupil is as follows:

  • £1900 Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority
  • £1900 Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order
  • £300 Pupils in year groups reception to year 11 recorded as Ever 5 Service Children or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence
  • £1320 for children in receipt of free school meals or who have been eligible for free school meals in the last 6 years.
 

Provision

The range of provision the school may consider includes:

  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher or assistant focused on overcoming gaps in learning
  • 1:1 support
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through our cluster partnership or external agencies
  • Acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics.
  • To support children’s learning in the classroom by: ensuring that the children who qualify for free school meals have their needs clearly identified and their progress closely monitored through school. supporting further intervention in learning when this would help a Free School Meals child reach their potential.
  • To fund additional resources including IT programmes.
  • To fund specialised training to deliver effective intervention programmes.
  • To fund extra- curricular activities to ensure effective inclusion enabling all pupils to access a full curriculum.
