Pupil Premium Impact Statement 2015-2016

On 5th February 2016 we were delighted to receive a letter from the Department For Education congratulating us on winning an award for our Key Stage 2 Pupil Premium work. It states that we are one of the high achieving schools in the country, in terms of the attainment and progress of our disadvantaged pupils since 2011.

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant, PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


The pupil premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11.

The DfE introduced a fund of £625 million in April 2011 to give schools £400 per year for children who:

  • were registered as eligible for free school meals
  • had been looked after for 6 months or longer

From April 2012, the DfE extended pupil premium funding to children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years. For the 2015 to 2016 financial year, funding for the pupil premium has increased to £2.545 billion. Schools will receive:

  • £1,320 per pupil of primary-school age
  • £935 per pupil of secondary-school age
  • £1,900 per pupil who:
    • has been looked after for 1 day or more
    • has been adopted from care
    • has left care under a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangements order

School accountability for the pupil premium

The pupil premium is paid to schools as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.

Ofsted inspections report on how schools’ use of the funding affects the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.

The DfE also hold schools to account through performance tables, which include data on:

  • the attainment of the pupils who attract the funding
  • the progress made by these pupils
  • the gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and their peers
