Christ the King Catholic Primary School

Pupil Premium Funding September 2016

 

What is Pupil Premium Funding?

 

Pupil Premium is additional government funding allocated to schools to boost attainment of disadvantaged children to ensure that all children fulfils his/her potential, regardless of their circumstances.

 

The funding is allocated to schools for children who have registered for free school meals in the last six years, are in care, or have parents in the Armed Forces.

 

Schools can choose how they wish to spend their money, based on their knowledge of individual pupils needs.  However they are responsible and accountable for how they use the additional funding to support pupils from low income families and other target groups.

In 2013-2014 the funding allocated to our school was £32,400.  The number of children eligible to benefit from this money was 33.

In 2014-2015 the funding allocated to our school was £44,100. The number of children eligible to benefit from this money was 31.

How do we spend Pupil Premium?

 

Some children may need help to support them with their academic needs and others may need to be given opportunities to achieve at a higher level, while others may need to build their confidence and self- esteem or support for their emotional well-being.

 

Some children may need help so that they can take part in school trips and activities.

There may be times when families experience financial difficulty and need support providing school uniform.

 

Some children need additional support in groups or one to one through interventions.

We spend some of the money on additional staff, resources and training.
