The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to underachievement.  These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals (FSM), those who have been adopted and children of armed service personnel.  The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.

In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated directly to schools and is clearly identifiable.  It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

Schools are required to report on the funding received, how this is being used, and the impact of work.

2017/18  Pupil Premium Funding

St Paul’s CE Primary School  received £79,916

This was used as follows:

To provide one-to-one or small group tuition for targeted pupils.

  • To employ a family support worker
  • To ensure that we have associated staff trained in Elklan, All Aboard, Talking Partners, Precision Teaching, Maths interventions,Wave 3 and Reciprocol reading who can provide daily 1:1 or small group tuition for  pupils as required
  • To enable our SENDCo/Inclusion Manager to provide a targeted level of support to some of our most vulnerable children so as they can make the progress expected of them.
  • To subsidise educational visits, including residentials, for example by funding with transport, board and lodgings.
  • To support with subsidies to Breakfast Club, School Milk, After School Clubs and School Uniform.
  • To provide external counselling for pupil premium children as required

Findings from review December 2018 

For some children these subsidies have had a huge impact on their self –esteem and confidence as well as an increased and sustained attendance and reduction in lateness.
