Pupil Premium

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

Charlton C.E. Primary School

Pupil Premium 2018/2019

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England in order to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to close the gap between these pupils and their peers.

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is additional funding that the government gives to schools for each pupil on roll where they are deemed to be disadvantaged. The Pupil Premium is allocated to those who are currently entitled to FSM (Free School Meals), those who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM). It is also allocated to children who are, or who have been, looked after by the local authority and for those children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. The Pupil Premium funding must be spent on pupils to support their education, but it is for the school to determine and be accountable for how it is spent.

 

How do I find out if I am eligible?

Any parent can apply for free school meals via Kent County Council or their child’s school. This is a quick and simple process and you can complete the Local Authority form online : https://www.cloudforedu.org.uk/ofsm/kent/.

Alternatively, please pop in to see our office staff who will help you make an application. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are automatically entitled to Free School Meals, but don’t let this stop you applying for Pupil Premium as there are so many ways your child can benefit.

 

How will my child benefit?

As a school, we seek to provide every child with the best possible learning experiences. We have high aspirations for our children and are determined to give each child an equal chance of success. Using Pupil Premium, we are able to provide a range of additional support with the aim of improving their progress and attainment. We also believe that enrichment experiences are essential and, through Pupil Premium, we are able to support families by providing financial assistance for Breakfast and After School Club, music tuition and financial assistance with school trips and uniform. We also strongly recommend that any child entitled to Pupil Premium takes the opportunity to enjoy free school meals.

The KS1 data shows that 100% of children eligible for FSM met the ‘expected’ standard in writing and maths. Reading at the ‘expected’ standard is below ‘all’ children in school and nationally but above Kent FSM. This will be a focus for this academic year.

 

The percentage of children eligible or FSM who achieved greater depth in reading, writing and maths is above all children in Kent, and nationally, and significantly above Kent FSM. More children eligible for FSM reached greater depth in reading and writing than ‘all’ children in school but were slightly below in reading at greater depth.

How the school will measure the impact of the Pupil Premium.

The progress and attainment of Pupil Premium children is tracked termly. Each child is tracked individually. Gaps are measured.

 

This data is used termly at Pupil Progress Meetings to inform the next steps in planning for interventions and Focus Groups. When planning for Focus Groups, the school will look at pupils from across the school. There are some pupils, who are not eligible for Pupil Premium, who will benefit from these groups if their needs are similar.

 

Pupil Progress Meetings are attended by SLT, SENCO, class teacher and TA. The well-being of children in receipt of Pupil Premium is also discussed during the Pupil Progress Meetings and additional support is planned for if needed.

 

The Pupil Premium strategy is presented to Governors annually.
