Pupil Premium Funding and Allocation at South Moreton Primary

Background

The Pupil Premium has been introduced by the Government to provide additional support for looked after children and those from low income families. Pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years are eligible for the Pupil Premium. Schools also receive a smaller amount for the children of service personnel; the Service Premium. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium and Service Premium as they see fit. However, they are accountable for how they use the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families and the other target groups.

 

Rationale

Pupil Premium funding will be allocated to help narrow the attainment gap that exists between pupils from disadvantaged and more affluent backgrounds; Service Premium will be used to narrow the attainment gap between pupils from service families and other pupils.

Funding will be targeted to help break down barriers to learning. These may include:

 

School will allocate the funding to the activities that are most likely to have an impact on improving achievement; using research evidence, experience of what works and an analysis of needs; the views of the pupil and parents will be taken into account when planning support; class teachers and senior leaders will be aware of which pupils are eligible for the Pupil Premium and Service Premium.

 Evaluation of 2013-14

The progress and attainment of pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium was inconsistent when compared with pupils who did not receive it. In both key stage 1 & 2 the progress was variable; for example, in some years pupils made accelerated progress and were close to their peers. In terms of expected levels of progress through key stage 2, the progress of Pupil Premium pupils at the end of KS2 overall (2013-14) was below that of other pupils but with a reduced gap.
