What is the pupil premium?
The Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives. It is targeted at students from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as pupils from less deprived families. Currently, the premium is worth £1300 (this has risen substantially since it was introduced) and goes to students who are currently on Free School Meals (FSM) or has been registered for (FSM) in the past six years, students in care, who have been looked after by local authorities for more than six months also continue to qualify for the Pupil Premium.
At Clifton Hampden C of E Primary School we have a very low percentage of pupils eligible for pupil premium: 1.63%. The national average for 2012-2013 is 26.2%
Why is there a pupil premium?
Students who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in their school career have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible. In 2009-10 GCSE statistics showed that around a third of students who have been on Free School Meals in the previous six years achieved five or more A*- C grades, compared to more than two thirds of their fellow students.
How will the impact of the spending of the Pupil Premium be measured?
At Clifton Hampden C of E Primary School, the usual cycle of data collection and the monitoring and tracking of attainment, will be used to inform progress and enable the early identification of need, support and appropriate intervention.
Please note that due to the very small number of pupils eligible for pupil premium, data is not shown as this is identifiable to the individuals.
