The pupil premium allocation is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of pupils who qualify to enable them to have the opportunity to achieve as well as they can and close the gap between them and their peers.
It is for schools to decide how the pupil premium funding is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils, groups of pupils or all pupils.
Funding for 2014 to 2015
In the 2014 to 2015 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:
- £1,300 for primary-aged pupils
Schools will also receive £1,900 for each looked-after pupil who:
- has been looked after for 1 day or more
- was adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005, or left care under:
- a special guardianship order
- a residence order
Cambridge Primary School receives significant Pupil Premium funding because of the high proportion of children eligible for free school meals and other qualifying criteria. As a school we are committed to the inclusion of all and therefore use this funding for individuals, groups and all pupils.
The £98,636 received in 2013-2014 was used:
- to provide individual tuition by teachers and teaching assistants
- to provide group tuition by teachers and teaching assistants
- to enable all pupils interested to have instrumental tuition
- to ensure support for the development of social and emotional resilience particularly for the most vulnerable
- to provide cultural and creative visitors, visits to extend experience and aspiration
- to enable residential opportunities for eligible individuals who would otherwise not have been able to accompany their peers
The £141,700 to be received in 2014-2015 will be used for all of the above and:
- to support identified pupils with ‘bridge learning and experience’ during holiday periods
- to support identified pupils with transition experience and resources
