Pupil Premium at Triangle C of E Primary School
Pupil premium is an allocation of funding from Government to support specific groups of children who may be vulnerable to underachievement.
It is allocated to schools to work with pupils who are registered for Free School Meals (FSM) or have been registered for them at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM'). These children receive £1320. Children who are currently looked after (LAC) or have been adopted (Post LAC) are also allocated a premium, they receive £1900. Children who are recorded as an Ever 6 Service Child or those who receive a child pension from the Ministry of Defence will receive £300 of additional funding.
Pupil premium funding is allocated directly to schools and is clearly identifiable as a budget within its own right. It is for individual schools to decide how the pupil premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. All schools are then held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support these pupils and are required to report on the amount of funding received and how it is being used.
At Triangle C of E Primary School the money is targeted to narrow the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. In addition, we recognise that not all of our children in receipt of this funding will be underachieving and therefore these, as well as those that are, will get access to provision, resources and opportunities to extend their knowledge and understanding further. We also use the funding to further engage and enrich the curriculum for these children, this also includes improving access to opportunities and experiences.
Our pupil premium policy, written in conjunction with parents, school staff, the Inclusion Manager, Headteacher and Inclusion Governor, was agreed by our Governing Body. This guides the use of funds and ensures that it represents value for money. Please click on the link to view the document. Triangle C of E Pupil Premium Policy
