Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

PUPIL PREMIUM GRANT AT COATES WAY SCHOOL

 

“The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.” (DfE 2012)

 

Aim of Pupil Premium

The Department for Education’s aim of the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is to ‘diminish the difference’ between the attainment of pupils from higher income families and that of our pupils from lower income families.

 

Eligibility

Pupils will qualify for the Pupil Premium Grant if they have been eligible to have free school meals at any time in the last six years. Along with those who are currently having free school meals, children who are looked after or whose parents are in the armed forces are also eligible. Subject to certain criteria pupils in our Nursery can qualify for Early Years Pupil Premium.

 

Allocation to Coates Way School

The amount allocated to the school for Pupil Premium Grant in 2014 –15 was £31,200 and in 2015-2016 it was £31,680. In 2016-2017 it was £24,062 and for the current financial year 2017-2018 the school has received £25,985 (see document below regarding planned expenditure for 2017 - 2018). We have 21 pupils who qualify for Pupil Premium funding from September 2017. This represents 9.57% of the pupil population. The funding has been spent on supporting intervention strategies in phonics, writing and maths as well as supporting children with extra-curricular activities such as music and sport. In addition, the school heavily subsidises school trips and residential stays.

 

Diminishing the Difference

The difference between PP children and non- PP children is measured by both the local authority and the Department for Education, and schools can use a variety of measures to track progress. Targeted support in put in place to support all children whose academic progress is lower than that of other children but in particular, children eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant.

 

Barriers to Educational Achievement

All children, whatever their situation, need to be able to learn and thrive within a supportive school so that they can achieve their potential. The strategies applied at Coates Way School are designed to support the child so they can overcome the barriers that they are facing.
