Pupil Premium Information

Pupil Premium is an additional amount of funding allocated to schools by the government to support the learning and progress of children in receipt of free school meals, looked after by the local authority or children of service personnel. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent and they will be held accountable for how this additional funding is impacting on those for whom the money is allocated.

The following information explains how Long Marston CE Primary School has allocated this and the previous year’s Pupil Premium and also how we plan to spend the funding next financial year.

Due to the size of our school, the potential for identifying pupils through the publishing of any report is inevitably greater. For this reason, it is our policy to publish a basic outline of how we have spent, and plan to spend, our Pupil Premium allocations.

  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all 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 or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupils or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

Provision

The range of provision the Governors may consider includes:

  • Reducing class sizes thus improving opportunities for effective AfL and accelerating progress.
  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning.
  • 1-1 support.
  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through learning mentors, trained TAs or external agencies.
  • Supporting families in affording school trips and extra curricular activities to ensure that all children have access to a range of experiences.
  • Purchase of additional resources.
  • All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress, moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in Literacy and Numeracy.
  • Pupil premium resources may also be used to target able children on FSM to achieve L3 at the end of Key Stage 1 or L5 at the end of Key Stage 2.
  • The Governors of the school will publish information on how they have used their Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’ for socially disadvantaged pupils if there are more than 5 children in receipt of Pupil Premium
