All schools receive funding known as the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG). This funding is given to support the achievement of pupils in school who are in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM). (This is not connected to the free school meals scheme for KS1 pupils). It is a major concern that children who come from low income families are at a greater risk of underperforming compared to children from families with higher incomes. The school also receives Service Pupil Premium (SPP) for children of Service personnel, and funding for Looked after Children (LAC) and children who were previously in receipt of free school meals (Ever 6). Schools decide how the PPG money is spent, since it is recognised they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
We continually strive to ensure that learning and teaching opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils. Our ambition is to ensure that barriers to learning are overcome, appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups and that the needs of disadvantaged pupils are assessed and addressed.
We would like to draw your attention to our principles for using the Pupil Premium Grant, which are as follows:
“We recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and that not all pupils who are disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We therefore reserve the right to allocate PPG funding to support a wider range of pupils who have been legitimately identified as needing additional support to achieve outcomes in their learning and/or well-being. The target group who receive support from PPG funding is subject to continual scrutiny by the Head Teacher and Governors of Compton Primary School.”
The Pupil Premium strategy, attainment data, expenditure and impact are reviewed annually by the Head Teacher, Inclusion Manager and governor responsible for Pupil Premium.
