Pupil Premium Report
Report to Parents 2016/2017
What is the Pupil Premium?
Introduced in April 2011, the aim of the Pupil Premium is to raise achievement among disadvantaged children. It provides additional funding to schools for children of low-income families who are eligible for free schools meals, and is designed to ensure those children benefit from the same educational opportunities as pupils from wealthier families. There is also a separate Service Premium for children with parents in the Armed Forces.
Every school is legally required to formally report how this funding has been used and the outcomes that have been achieved.
The full 2016-2017 report has been completed by the Senior Leadership Team and is now available upon request. In this document we report on the amount of pupil premium allocation, a summary of the main barriers to learning faced by eligible pupils in the school and how we will measure the impact on the pupils.
Owing to the very small numbers of pupils at Frieth, we wish to avoid identifying any particular children through the use of specific data within our report. As a school we analyse data to identify the barriers to learning, put plans in place to address these barriers, measure the impact on pupil welfare and progress, and use this analysis to plan the best use for the moneys received.
Planning for 2016-2017
At the present time, we anticipate a grant roughly equivalent to the 2016 2017 academic year. We plan to continue to use the pupil premium money received to support small group interventions, nurture groups and additional learning support. We will also use the money to subsidize pupils to attend enrichment clubs and activities that may not be otherwise accessible.
