The Pupil Premium is a sum of money that is allocated to schools to ensure that all children have an equal chance to succeed in schools. An amount is allocated for children eligible for free school meals, who are from service families and those that are in Local Authority Care.
The free school meal children are either registered now or have been registered in the past 6 years for free school meals.
The current funding allocation is £1320 per pupil for free school meal pupils, £1900 for children in local authority care, and £300 per pupil for children from service families.
The more children registered for free school meals the more pupil premium...and the more funding available to ensure that these children make good progress.
Schools are now expected to display their strategy for the school's use of pupil premium.The targeted and strategic use of pupil premium will support us in achieving our vision.
At the heart of our strategy are our four key priorities for school improvement:
Raise attainment and accelerate progress for all pupils
Further improve the quality of teaching, learning and assessment across all key stages.
Develop leadership at all levels.
Develop clear assessment procedures that actively support learning.
and impact of which will be assessed through criteria in the school development plan and at regular pupil progress reviews.
