Pupil Premium Policy

Pupil Premium Policy

Objectives

1. The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the
progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils.

2. The funding will be used to narrow the gap between the achievement of these
pupils and that of other pupils, not in receipt of the Pupil Premium.

3. As far as its powers allow the school will use the additional funding to address any underlying
inequalities between children eligible for Pupil Premium and others.

4. We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it
makes a significant impact on their education and lives.

Strategies

1. Pupil Premium spending will be clearly identifiable within the budget.

2. The Headteacher, in consultation with the governors and Senior Leadership Team, will decide how the Pupil Premium is spent for the benefit of those pupils entitled to it.

3. The school will be accountable for how it has used the additional funding to support the
achievement of those pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium and the Headteacher will report
to the governing body, to parents and to other stakeholders on how effective the intervention has been.

4. The school will publish online information about how we have used the Pupil
Premium.

5. The school will ensure that parents, governors and other stakeholders are made fully aware of the attainment of
pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.

6. The school will track the impact of the strategies put into place through the funding to ensure that
we can show the value that has been added to the education of the entitled children.

7. The school will monitor, evaluate and review the impact of the Pupil Premium
funding and this will form a regular part of discussion concerning pupil progress and pupil tracking.

8. The school will specifically identify Pupil Premium pupils in all relevant data.

Outcomes

This policy will play an important part in the educational development of the individual pupils who
are entitled to the Pupil Premium. The school will ensure that these pupils are treated equally and as
favourably as others and that the additional funding is used well to address the challenges they face.
The school will use the additional funding to promote the achievement and progress of all entitled
pupils. Through careful use of this additional funding the school is fully committed to ensuring that the
individual needs of each entitled child are met. As a result of the additional funding, the school aims to
narrow the gap between the attainment and progress of Pupil Premium and non-Pupil Premium pupils.
