Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to ‘close the gap’ between them and their peers.
Pupil Premium funding is paid to schools according to the number of children who have been:
- Registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (known as Ever 6 FSM measure)
- Been in care for 6 months or longer
- Children of parents who are in the Forces
The Pupil Premium has a number of wider aims:
- To increase social mobility
- To enable more children from disadvantaged backgrounds to get into the top Universities
- To reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving children
At Ash Green:
- We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all children
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged children are adequately assessed and addressed
- In making provision for socially disadvantaged children, we recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
- We also recognise that not all children who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals
Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
The Governing Board is responsible for accounting for the impact of the Pupil Premium funding. It is a requirement to report publicly on the deployment and impact of this funding.
