The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non mainstream settings, Looked after Children, children adopted from care and Service Forces children. It also includes pupils who have been eligible for FMS at any point in the last six years (known as Ever 6 FSM measure).
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, we are held accountable as to how we have used the additional funding to support these pupils and are also required to publish this information online. Tnis will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium and the extra support that they receive.
The main barriers to learnig are:
- Speech and Language skills
- Lack of life experience
- Parental input
- The pupils knowledge and understanding of how to learn
6 out of 8 children also have additional SEN
