PUPIL PREMIUM REPORTING TO PARENTS 2018-19

 

  • Pupil Premium is government funding given to schools, in addition to the underlying school's budget, to raise achievement and close the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.

  • In the 2018 to 2019 financial year, primary schools will receive £1 320 for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. Schools will receive £2 300 for looked-after or adopted children and £300 for each child from a family where the parent is a member of the Armed Forces.

  • Schools have the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, but there must always be a focus on identifying ways they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.

     

    At Miers Court Primary School, we ensure that our Pupil Premium money is used to provide a range of teaching and learning opportunities for our children, closely matched to their needs.

     

    To narrow the gap between pupils eligible for Pupil Premium and their peers and to eliminate barriers to learning and progress: -

     

    i) All pupils receive well-planned support to reach their individual targets in English and Maths so they achieve to the best of their ability.

    ii) All pupils have access to a range of opportunities across and beyond the whole curriculum, which they might not otherwise be able to access.

    iii) We work alongside our families, listening and offering advice and support, and provide parents/carers with ways to help their children at home.

     

    Total Grant for 2018-19: £35,640 (estimated)

    All our work through the Pupil Premium will be aimed at accelerating progress to move children to at least age-related expectations.

     

    The school will publish information on how the Pupil Premium Grant has been used to 'narrow the gap', for pupils eligible for Pupil Premium at the end of the academic year.
