Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to local authorities and schools with pupils on roll in January  that are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years. Each of these pupils attracted £900.Now £1300. Schools will have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. We urge schools and local authorities to encourage parents to register their child as eligible for FSM so that each school receives their maximum Pupil Premium entitlement.




2014-2015 our funding was £14,300

In 2014/2015 we have put in a range of different intervention programmes to support children in their learning and these are being closely monitored for their effectiveness. TA’s are all involved in daily intervention programmes and giving targeted support to ensure all children made good or better progress.

We will also subsidise trips, visits and visitors and sign-post parents to the holiday club at Tarleton Academy which is free to pupil premium families.

Our pupil premium all made at least good progress in this academic year and many made better than expected progress.


2015-2016 our funding is £17,160. This year we have funded an additional teacher  and TA each morning to work with an intervention group which means that all pupil premium have access to additonal support for literacy and numeracy. This also means our other classes are kept small so everyone gets godo quality teaching in smaller classes.

We are also using the money to subsidise trips for our children. We continue to carefully monitor the progress of all our children.

in 2016-2017 we expect our funding to be £17,000 and we will be using this to provide additional teachers and teaching assistants to provide intervention support throughout school. We will continue to use some of the funding towards school trips.
