Pupil Premium grant provides additional Government funding to address the gap in educational attainment and long term economic wellbeing between socially disadvantaged children and young people compared to their peers.
Every pupil who is eligible for free school meals (FSM), or has been in receipt of them in the last six years will receive pupil premium at these levels:
£1,320 for primary-age pupils; £935 for secondary-age pupils; £1900 for looked after pupils; £300 for service pupils.
At Cleaswell Hill, we are committed to using this money to the best effect, which includes combining it with other resources, or working with others to maximise its impact.
We ensure that these allocated funds are targeted by the school and its impact monitored to ensure that it is used effectively to support learning and secure excellent outcomes for pupils.
The percentage of our pupils eligible to access Pupil Premium is 32%.
As for 2017-2018 (£66,275), we continue to use our 2018-2019 Pupil Premium (of £71,830) to support initiatives in the following areas:
- Additional one to one and group tuition to support learning;
- Additional support in school that will build a child or young person’s self-esteem and confidence;
- Aspiration raising activities that will benefit the child or young person’s learning and development;
- Targeted strategies and activities to support pupils’ social and emotional development;
- Extra learning resources that may support these individual pupils;
- Additional support for vocational training;
- Revision courses;
- Educational visits which promote learning
- Improved staff knowledge and expertise enabling the implementation of improved strategies with pupils, and supporting them to better access learning
These priorities are informed by an analysis of the effectiveness of the school from a variety of sources. One of the most important of these is the progress being made by individuals and groups of pupils. In addition, we use information from parents/carers, visiting agencies, internal and external audits and questionnaires.
All of this information, together with termly pupil progress data and reports from pupils’ Annual Review meetings, show that the strategies and interventions made possible with Pupil Premium funding are having a positive impact on pupil achievement.
