Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools for the number of eligible pupils it has on roll on top of its main school funding.  The grant is given to aid schools in closing the gap in attainment between: children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces; children of statutory school age from low-income families who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (at any point over the last 6 years); children looked after continuously for more than 6 months; Free School Meals children in non-mainstream settings; and those of their peers. 

The funding is used to support interventions and provision already in place at school or to provide extra provision where a need is apparent to support all pupils.  How schools do this is closely monitored and they are accountable for the impact the funding has.

The strategy document below is a statutory publication completed for how Ashley Primary School intends to support pupils: outlining the use of the Pupil Premium Funding and its impact.  This strategy includes the use of the  School-Led Tutoring Funding and the Recovery Premium Funding given to schools in the year 2021-2022 (money given to support school in light of school closures due to Covid-19).  This strategy spans the next three years, but is to be reviewed annually.
