Pupil Premium Grant Information

2015-2016

Pupil Premium is money that the government allocates to schools on the basis of:

  • The number of pupils eligible for Free School Meals (FSM)
  • The number of children who have been eligible for Free School Meals
  • The number of pupils who are in care; Looked After Children (LAC)
  • The number of children who have previously been in care and are now adopted or in special guardianship arrangements.
  • Children whose parents are members of the armed forces.
  1. FINANCIAL YEAR 2015-2016
  •  In the financial year 2015-2016, our school received the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:
    • £1320
    • A child in the care of the Local Authority will receive £1900
  • Schools will also receive £1900 for each pupil who has left the local authority care because of one of the following:
    • Adoption
    • A special guardianship order
    • A child arrangements order
    • A residence order
  • Schools must use this funding to narrow the gap between pupil premium children and other children so that they are given all the support available to reach their age expected levels of learning.  This year, Higham Ferrers Nursery and Infant School has been allocated £42,878.  Last financial year we were allocated £36,400.
  1. HOW WE SPEND THE PUPIL PREMIUM FUNDING AT HIGHAM FERRERS NURSERY AND INFANT SCHOOL
  • Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) funding as they see fit.  However, schools will be held accountable for how the money has been used to impact on improving pupils’ outcomes in learning.

At our school we use this funding to:

  • Employ a Parent Support Advisor for 2 days per week.
  • Employ a part time teacher to deliver a reading intervention programme to pupils who require it.
  • Kinetic letters resources for pupils who need them.
  • Allocate teacher time to work with pupil premium pupils once a week on appropriate interventions.
  • Provide emotional and mental wellbeing support interventions such as RESPECT and Relax Kids groups.
  • Deliver the Solihull Parent Support programme.
  • Provide 1:1 support where appropriate.
  1. IMPACT ON PUPIL PREMIUM CHILDREN DURING 2015-2016
  • These levels below are from the end of academic year 2015 (financial year 2015-2016) when the children were in Year 2.
  • Our school always evaluates Pupil Premium outcomes under the following headings and records if there is a gap between the achievements of pupil premium pupils and other pupils in our school:
    • Our pupil premium outcomes compared to other pupils in our school (within school gap)
    • National outcomes of pupils compared to within our school pupil premium outcomes (National pupils)
