Pupil Premium at Park Primary School


What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is funding provided to school which is additional to main school funding.  Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, however schools are accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families.  

The Governing Body and Leadership Team of the school are accountable for ensuring that the resources allocated through the Pupil Premium Grant have an impact on pupils' educational standards and achievement.

Pupil Premium funding is delegated to support children who:

  • Have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point during their time in primary education.
  • Children who have parents who are in the armed services (army, RAF, Royal Navy)
  • Children who are in care of the Local Authority
  • Children who have been adopted (eligible since April 2014)

The attached report summarises how Pupil Premium funding has been spent and the impact that funding has had on achievement at Park Primary school.

In the 2017 - 2018 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,320 for primary-aged 

Schools will also receive £1,900 for each looked-after pupil who:

  • has been looked after for 1 day or more
  • was adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005, or left care under a special guardianship order or a  residence order

Schools will receive £300 for each pupil with a parent serving in the Army, RAF or Royal Navy.

Priorities for 2017-2018

  • Increase attainment of Pupil Premium Pupils to be, initially, in line with national 'all pupils' attainment and national 'other' attainment. 
  • Based on 2017 assessment data, we will focus on disadvantaged pupils' attainment in Reading and Maths, particularly middle prior attaining groups in Math as well as the attainment of pupils achieving the higher standard in Reading.
