Pupil Premium Spending 2018/2019


Our Pupil Premium Children have once again made fantastic progress this year! We are so proud of all of them.


The Pupil Premium is currently £1320 per pupil. It is allocated to schools based on the number of children who claim free school meals, or who have claimed in the last 6 years, or who are Looked After Children. Children from service families are also allocated a pupil premium of £500.


We have 8 pupils who qualified for pupil premium funding, meaning that our allocation from April 2018 – March 2019 is £10560


The following year we will have 9 pupil premium pupils, 2 pupil premium plus pupils and 2 forces premium pupils.


As we have such a small number of pupil premium children, it is impossible to summarise the main barriers to educational achievement for these children because they all have individual needs. Therefore, the money is allocated very much on an individual basis following discussion with parents, children and teaching staff. We use structured conversation to review and agree targets, and to ‘get to know’ children more fully, so that we can gain a greater understanding and agreement about the way forward.

We acknowledge that increasing aspiration and achievement for children depends very much on their enjoyment of life and learning as well as the development of self-awareness and motivation to try new things. We know that with the development of these things academic success is more likely to follow.


This strategy was discussed and agreed with Geoff Wattam – Vice Chair of Governors, and Pupil Premium Governor on 16th May 2017. It was then agreed at the Finance committee on 16th May 2017.


With these things in mind this is how we propose to spend the funding:

We measure the impact of our pupil premium funding in many ways specific to the pupils who recieve the funding. Being specific would enable these children to be identified. Below is a summary for those pupils funded up to the end of the academic year 2018.
