Pupil Premium Grant

In 2011 Pupil Premium Funding was introduced by the Department for Education (DfE) as they believe this is the best way to narrow the attainment gap between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring funding reaches the children who need it most. This funding is for pupils who have been registered for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years (Ever 6 FSM) or are being continuously looked after by the local authority for more than six months (LAC). The funding was sent to schools based on the number of children on roll, from the January 2013 Census data, who are an Ever 6 child. Each child was awarded £953.00.

In addition, Pupil Premium Funding is allocated for children who have parents that are currently serving in the armed forces. In 2012/13 the funding was £250 per child.

This money is allocated to enable the school to fund initiatives to ensure children reach their full potential, academically and socially.

During 2015/16 the funding for each Pupil Premium child is £1,320.

Summary of Pupil Premium Funding spending 2015 – 2016
Our key objective at Grange Primary School in using the Pupil Premium Funding is to narrow the gap between pupils groups and ensure that children make at least good progress.

At Grange Primary School we have developed a monitoring and tracking system for all pupils and this helps us to, quickly, identify any children who are at risk of not making sufficient progress. We are then able to plan and implement focused intervention support for these vulnerable children whether it be social, emotional or academic.

At Grange Primary School we want to use funding to support and provide children with opportunities to experience new and exciting challenges that they may not always have access to as well as enhancing the curriculum and the children’s enjoyment of learning.

Where children are identified to be in need of extra intervention we aim to provide them with, as far as possible, quality first teaching through the use of teachers to deliver specific programs.

Note to parents:

We encourage all parents and carers to check if you think your child may be entitled to Free School Meals because of your family's income level or if they have a parent who is a member of the armed services. If you are unsure please contact the School Office (in confidence) and they can help you to register your child. Even if you do not wish them to have meals, by registering them the school could still claim the Pupil Premium Funding that can then be used to help your child.

Parents in receipt of the following benefits can register their child for Free School Meals:

Income Support
Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
Child Tax Credit (provided you're not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
