St Peter’s CE Primary & Nursery School

Pupil Premium Expenditure

Autumn 2017

 

Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement.

The Pupil Premium Grant provides additional funding for children who have been eligible for free school meals in any of the previous six years, as well as looked after and adopted children. It also provides a smaller amount of funding for children who have been eligible for the service child premium at any point in the last five years.

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.

The Governing Body of St Peter’s have decided that this grant will be most effectively spent on supporting children’s learning in the classroom by providing high quality first teaching, curriculum support, targeted intervention, engagement and enrichment activities, pastoral support and social and behavioural intervention.

As with all children at St Peter’s, to ensure maximum impact the needs of children entitled to the Pupil Premium are clearly identified, steps are taken to meet their individual needs and their progress is closely monitored through school. Where small group / 1:1 support is felt to be most beneficial Pupil Premium will be used to support this provision.

 

Principles

Teaching and learning at St Peter’s is designed to meet the individual needs of all children.

  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.
  • We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and we also recognise that not all children that are disadvantaged have free school meals.
  • We will allocate Pupil Premium funding after a needs analysis to identify priority groups and individuals.

 

St Peter’s Pupil Premium Grant for 2017-18 is £117,440

Our Pupil Premium grant for 2017/18 is based on 82 Pupil Premium children and 18 Service children.

Funding is allocated individually, but provision varies according to age, individual needs and interests. The following is a list of how the Pupil Premium has been allocated this year.

  • Specialist support where needed;
  • Raising pupil aspirations through engagement/aspiration programmes such as funded educational visits/extra-curricular activities and subsidised musical instrument tuition (as appropriate);
