Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Looked after Children, children adopted from care and Service Forces children. It also includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).

Pupil Premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units.

Pupil Premium at Arbour Vale

Here at Arbour Vale we have identified the following as potential barriers to learning for our students:

– The complex learning needs of some pupils eligible for PP result in them making slightly lower rates of progress than those pupils not eligible for PP
– Pupils eligible for PP demonstrate a high level of social and emotional need and often lack age appropriate life skills
– Behavioural issues for some pupils eligible for PP are preventing them from engaging in effective learning
– Low attendance rates for some pupils eligible for PP  reduces their time in school and reduces their learning time and progress

How we plan to overcome these barriers, our planned spend for 2018-19 and the review of the use of our 2017-18 Pupil Premium Grant can be found in our current Pupil Premium Strategy Statement.

Pupil Premium Report – 2017-18

If you think your child may eligible to receive this additional funding and support but are not sure whether the school are aware then please speak to the school office or your child’s class teacher.
