Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Allocations 2017/18

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium (PP) is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

In the 2017 to 2018 financial year, primary schools received £1,320 for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years. Primary schools also received £1,900 for each child registered as being ‘Looked After Children’ (LAC). 

How do pupils benefit?

At Lazonby CE Primary School we have 8 children currently on roll that meet the criteria for pupil premium.

This page details the proposed spending for the Pupil Premium 2016/2017 and the strategies that we will implement to support our Pupil Premium Pupils.

The pupil premium funding is used to fund existing teaching assistants and additional teaching assistants, who are used to support pupil premium pupils in class. Relevant pupils are clearly identified on the school’s tracking system so that evidence of their performance is clear.

Teachers are clear about the pupil’s gaps in learning and teaching assistant support is used to target these gaps in learning. We track and analyse pupil progress to ensure that pupils are given the support they need to achieve their expected progress.

The nature of the support includes: targeted teaching assistant support, small group work, 1:1 support for Speech and Language, Phonics, Literacy and maths support, structured reading, emotional well being support, specific needs focussed assessment eg social stories, anger management, , Maths recovery and reading interventions as well as financial support for residential and other school trips and experiences.

The Pupil Premium funding may also be spent on specific resources for an identified pupil.
