Pupil Premium

The government believes that pupil premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for FSM, a smaller amount allocated according to the number of children of service families, and an allocation for each pupil who has been 'Looked After' (in care) for 6 months or more. In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for FSM within the past 6 years

The Governors of the school will ensure that there is an annual statement included on the website, to parents on how the pupil premium funding had been used to address the issue of narrowing the gap for socially disadvantaged pupils

We encourage all parents and carers to ensure that the office staff know whether their child is entitled to FSM, is a “Looked After” Child or has a parent who is a member of the armed services. We treat all enquiries in the strictest confidence.

The amount per pupil was £1,320 for FSM, £1,900 for “Looked After” children and £300 for service children

How has the Pupil Premium been spent at St Paul's CE Primary?

As a school, St Paul’s CE Primary has prioritised the use of the pupil premium funding to address the following issues:

  • To reduce the attainment gap between the FSM pupils and non FSM pupils.
  • To address the inequalities between children eligible for FSM and their peers.
  • To ensure the children have “readiness to learn” and that any barriers from home are addressed.

The impact of our provision at the end of KS2 for 2014/15 showed that:

  • 100% of pupils who received FSM achieved Level 4 or better in reading, writing, mathematics and GPS.
  • 25% of pupils who were eligible for free school meals achieved Level 5 in maths, reading and writing compared to 13% nationally.
  • 63% of pupils who were eligible for free school meals achieved Level 5 in maths compared to 28% nationally.

 

  2 Levels Progress Better Than Expected Progress

Writing 100% 63%
Mathematics 100% 75%

[There were 8 children eligible for pupil premium and therefore each child represents 12.5%]
