The pupil premium gives schools extra funding to raise attainment of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11.
A fund of £625 million was introduced in April 2011 to give schools £400 per year for:
every child registered as eligible for free school meals
children who have been looked after for 6 months or longer
children of armed forces personnel
From April 2012, pupil premium funding was also extended to:
all children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years
Current funding per pupil premium child in 2020/21 is £1320.
The Government believes that the pupil premium is the best way to address the current inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their peers.
Teaching is the top priority, including professional development, support, recruitment and retention.
Targeted support for struggling pupils is a key component of Downderry’s strategy; as well as strategies that relate to non-academic factors, including improving attendance, behaviour and social and emotional support.
The Head Teacher, Inclusion Manager and Quality of Education Lead, oversee the organisation of all additional provision.
There is a link governor for pupil premium children who monitors the provision and its impact.
Pupil premium strategy is reviewed in September, at the start of each new academic year.
