Pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It’s designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers.
Funding for financial year 2018 to 2019
In the 2018 to 2019 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each pupil registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years:
£1,320 for pupils in reception to year 6
£935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11
Schools will receive £2,300 for any pupil:
The leadership team and governing body of Monkston Primary School have decided that Pupil Premium funding should be spent in the following ways:
The governing body tracks the achievement of children who qualify for PP funding. They ensure they have their needs clearly identified and met and their progress is closely monitored throughout school; in particular the gap between their achievement and that of their peers. Pupil premium funding is used at Monkston to enable disadvantaged pupils to make accelerated progress and to build strong foundations for their future.
