Pupil Premium at Frizington Community Primary School

At Frizington Community Primary School we have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential. We have pupils who meet the criteria for Pupil Premium Grant in the academic year 2017/2018. We produce and publish a strategy which includes the School’s pupil premium grant allocation; identifies the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the School; outlines how the school will spend the allocated pupil premium grant and how the School will measure the effect of the Pupil Premium.

What is Pupil Premium?

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The funding is based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years (Ever 6,); who currently receive free school meals; whose parents are in the armed forces or have been ‘looked after’ continuously for more than six months. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium Grant, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families. From September 2016, schools are required to publish a Pupil Premium Strategy. This will ensure that parents are fully informed about the amount of allocation, barriers faced by eligible pupils, how the funding is to be spent, how impact will be measured and the date the strategy will be reviewed. We also need to include how the allocation was spent for the previous year and its impact on eligible and other pupils. Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to diminish the differences between pupil groups. As a School we consistently track all groups of pupils to ensure that they make good or better progress. Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. For new entrants that start with low attainment on entry, our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated progress in order to reach age related expectations as they move through the School. Once at age related expectations we always continue to extend that learning further to ensure that they reach higher levels of attainment. We closely monitor how we are spending the allocated funds to ensure they are having an impact on Pupil Premium pupil’s achievement.
