Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure and Strategy

Reporting to parents


Pupil Premium is money given to schools directly from central government. It is calculated on the basis of how many children at the school have successfully applied for this additional funding. This is why it is vital that if you think you might qualify you can either call 0300 500 80 80 or register online at If you call that number it is completely confidential and all the information you need is name, address and National Insurance number. They will let you know straight away if you qualify and then notify the school for you.

This money is earmarked in our school to support those children from less well-off families and make sure they achieve at least as well as children from better-off families.


We find that sometimes these children have additional barriers to educational achievement which may include:

  • Attitudes to learning

  • Low attendance and punctuality

  • Limited access to language

  • Low aspirations

  • Narrow experiences outside of school

  • Lack of parental engagement


    For each child who is eligible for Pupil Premium funding the school receives £1320 which will be spent to provide a range of support strategies for these pupils to help address and remove the barriers mentioned above.


All of this spending is tracked closely by teachers and the SLT who monitor interventions to check on their effectiveness. We measure the impact by speaking to class teachers during ½ termly pupil progress meetings & also by looking at assessment data before and after interventions take place.
