What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is a sum of money allocated to the school to narrow any attainment gaps between pupils from low income families and their peers. It aims to provide significant funding for disadvantaged children to enable them to have the same life chances through high achievement as their peers.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to the school and is generated by children:

  • Who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM);
  • Who have been eligible for FSM at any point in their schooling in the last six years;
  • Who have been ‘looked after’ by a local Authority continuously for more than six months;
  • Children from service families 

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used.

2015/16

In the financial year 2015-16, pupil premium funding was £1320 per pupil and £1900 for children who are looked after, adopted or leave care under a Special Guardianship Order or Residence Order. The school will receive £28,503.

At Horsmonden Primary School we aim to use the additional funding in the following ways:

  • To provide short‐term intervention programmes for underachieving pupils and those with SEN, for example Acceleread/Accelerwrite and Success@Arithmetic.
  • To resource the above intervention programmes in terms of materials and staff.
  • To support the provision of one to one tuition for some pupils.
  • To fund additional training needs for staff supporting children receiving Pupil Premium.
  • To ensure that all pupils can take part in educational visits.
  • To ensure that all pupils can access a wide variety of extra-curricular activities.
  • To provide free places at Early Birds breakfast club and After School Club.
  • To pay for school meals for new entrants to the school until free school meals have been authorised.
  • Art therapy to promote emotional health and well-being.
  • Special lunchtime provision to encourage healthy eating.
  • To provide essentials such as uniform and PE kit.
