Pupil Premium - What is it?
Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.
We will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free Pupils who are eligible for free school meals, or have been eligible in the past 6 years.
£955 for pupils in year 7 to year 11.
We will also receive £2,345 for Children who are looked after by the local authority and each pupil who has been adopted from care or has left care.
Use of the pupil premium
Evidence suggests that pupil premium spending is most effective when schools use a tiered approach, targeting spending across 3 areas, with a particular focus on teaching.
Investing in high-quality teaching
2. Targeted academic support
Additional support for some pupils focussed on their specific needs
3. Wider approaches
Support for non-academic issues that impact success in school, such as attendance, behaviour and social and emotional challenges.
At Parklands we use this tiered approach to support disadvantaged pupils. See the link below for full details.
