Pupil Premium Allocation, Use and Impact on Attainment

The DfE has benchmarked money that comes into school as Pupil Premium and the DfE expects this money to support pupils who are currently on Free School Meals or have had Free School Meals within the past 6 years. This Pupil Premium is used to support pupils’ attainment and achievement ensuring that there is not an attainment gap between children eligible for Free School Meals and their peers.

The pupil premium can be used for, and has in the past been used to support the cost of targeted support, One to One (1-2-1) tuition, residential trips, curriculum trips, creative clubs after school and sports clubs after school, breakfast club and emotional/ social support from the Learning Mentors. The school finance department has set a Pupil Premium cost center that will journal the costs and uses of the pupil premium and this information assists the Head Teacher and Governors to monitor the impact that the Pupil Premium has had on maintaining and raising standards.

The Government through Ofsted and the local authority monitors the use of the Pupil Premium and expects the school to be able to show that the Premium is supporting FSM families to reach National expectations in reading writing and mathematics and that it removes financial barriers that may impede the social and academic progress a child could make.

Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure

The school is allocated additional funding for those pupils in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM), looked after children and children whose parent/s are serving in the Armed Forces. This funding is referred to as Pupil Premium. It was introduced in 2011/12 to provide targeted funding to close the underachievement gap.

We allocate the funding to support initiatives within school in order to ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils so that a child’s full potential can be maximised academically and/or socially.

DfE guidance

“Schools, headteachers and teachers will decide how to use the Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

We know a good education is the key to improving young people’s life chances, to enable them to progress into adulthood with the skills and confidence for success. The Pupil Premium will provide schools with the resources with which to address inequalities in the system and raise the attainment of those pupils from low income families”.
