The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly-funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from Reception to Year 11 and close the gap between them and their peers.
Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units. The pupil premium is paid to schools, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need. Ofsted inspections report on how schools’ use of the funding affects the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.
All service Children have access to all the above Pupil Premium including:-
- Breakfast Club.
- School Uniform allowance of £20.00 per year, per child.
- IPad access for Skype for parent be deployed away.
- Swimming for the Autumn Term.
- Agreed Part Payment towards Residential for Children in Years 4, 5 & 6.
The amount of Pupil Premium received by Barwick and Stoford Primary School during the 2016-2017 financial year was £46,400.
- We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils.
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
- In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
- We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered for free school meals.
- Pupil Premium 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.
