Pupil Premium Reporting to Parents

Pupil Premium is funding that we receive from the Government. It is additional to our main school funding and paid with the intention that it is used to address the underlying inequalities between children and thereby to raise standards of attainment. It is to be used for the children who need it most and need is to be determined by the school. The payment which the school receives is based on the number of children receiving free school meals (or who have previously received free school meals), looked after children or children adopted from care on or after 30th December 2005 but there is no requirement to spend it on those children alone provided the objectives are met.

Principles

At Grewelthorpe CE Primary School:

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups. This includes ensuring that the needs of  disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
  • In making provision for disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be disadvantaged
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are disadvantaged are registered for or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils considered by school to be eligible and who in the opinion of the school will benefit from the use of the Pupil Premium for appropriate provision to meet their needs.
  • Funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of Pupil Premium interventions at one time.

Provision

The range of provision the school may consider includes:

  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher or assistant focused on overcoming gaps in learning
  • 1:1 support
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through our cluster partnership or external agencies
  • Acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards, particularly in reading and mathematics.
  • All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in Literacy and Numeracy
  • Resources may also be used to target able children on FSM to achieve National Expectations or above at the end of KS1 or KS2
  • The school will publish information on how they have used their Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for disadvantaged pupils.

If your child does not receive Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family's income level, please contact the office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child.
