PUPIL PREMIUM 

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional government funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.  In 2018-19, schools receive £1,320 for pupils who are, or have been in the last 6 years, eligible for Free School Meals and £2,300 for any pupil identified as a Looked After Child in the January census. Looked after children are those children who have been adopted, subject to a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order) or who has been in local-authority care for 1 day or more. In addition, schools receive £300 for each child who has a parent in the Armed Forces. 

 

If you think you may be eligible for Free School Meals, even if your child already gets Universal Infant Free School Meals as they are in EYFS or KS1, please contact the office as eligibility for Pupil Premium will enable your child to access the support we have in place. Follow this link to more information on the NYCC website.

 

How can schools use the Pupil Premium?

Individual schools can decide how to spend the Pupil Premium, according to the needs of the pupils. Reports by the Sutton Trust/Education Endowment Fund (EEF) on which types of support and interventions are most beneficial are taken into account when deciding the best use of the additional Pupil Premium funding.

 

How is Sutton in Craven CE Primary School spending the Pupil Premium funding 2018-2019?

We track the progress and attainment of all children in school, which enables us to provide additional targeted support for those pupils eligible for Pupil Premium. Some examples of how we are using the Pupil Premium this year are:

  • Teaching Assistant Support for small groups and 1: 1 work to close the gaps in attainment
  • Staff training to further support learning
  • Subsidising the cost of educational visits and out of school clubs and activities
  • Contributing to SELFA (Skipton Extended Learning for All) to provide out of school clubs and holiday activities.
