What is Pupil Premium?

What is it?

Pupil Premium is a grant given to schools for each child who currently claims free school meals or has done so in the past. It is vital that any parent whose child is eligible for pupil premium applies, even if they do not choose to claim the free meals, as the grant enables us to provide extra resources for your child.

The Department for Education website is a good source of additional information:

How do we review the impact of this money?

Each half term we look at how individual children and groups are making progress. Mrs McDermott looks specifically at the progress of children who are in receipt of Pupil Premium funding. Each year, Mrs McDermott puts a report together which is presented to our governing body. Maria Parker is the governor responsible for Pupil Premium. The Governing Body makes sure we are spending the money efficiently and that it is helping children to get better outcomes in their learning. It is also reviewed by the Finance committee who check regularly on how we spend our budget
