Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

 

  • 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 2019/20 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 Inclusion Manager and Head Teacher 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.
