Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years or have been in care for 6 months or longer

In the 2014 to 2015 financial year, pupil premium funding will increase to £1,300 for each eligible primary-aged pupil and £1,900 for each eligible pupils who have been ‘looked-after’ for one day or more or who were adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005.

Eligibility for free school meals is used as the main measure of deprivation at pupil level to decide on how much funding each school receives.

The Head of School and Local Advisory Board is accountable for the impact of pupil premium funding in the following ways:

  • performance tables, which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers
  • requiring schools to publish details online each year of how they are using the pupil premium and the impact it is having on pupil achievement
  • the Ofsted inspection framework, where inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium

Each school must publish a report of the impact of pupil premium on attainment of disadvantaged pupils at the end of each academic year.

Please see the documents below to find out how Cooks Spinney plans to use the Pupil Premium Grant to raise attainment this year.
