Pupil Premium & It’s Benefits…
Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.
Pupil Premium funding is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been:
- Registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (known as Ever 6 FSM measure)
- Been in care for 6 months or longer
- Children of parents who are in the Forces
The Pupil Premium has a number of wider aims:
- To increase social mobility
- To enable more pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to get into the top Universities
- To reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils
At Endon Hall Primary School:
- We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
- In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
- We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals
Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
The Governing Body is responsible for accounting for the impact of the Pupil Premium funding. It is a requirement to report publicly on the deployment and impact of this funding.
