Pupil Premium

Schools should have a very clear strategy in terms of how Pupil Premium funding is allocated based on the specific needs of disadvantaged pupils in order to raise attainment and increase rates of progress, reducing the impact of barriers to learning, and accelerating attainment and progress from initial starting points:

  • Closing in school gaps.
  • Ensuring that the proportion of children reaching or exceeding age related expectations narrows against national data.


It is vital that we have a very clear and accurate understanding of the impact of funding upon attainment and progress. Our allocation of proportional funding is very much based upon percentages of pupil premium children in each year group and impact is measured and monitored so that sound decisions can be made for different cohorts of children, thus essentially increasing our accountability.
