The amount of the school’s allocation from 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.

In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

School received £1320 in the financial year 2016-2017 for each child eligible for Pupil Premium.

We have spent the Pupil Premium in the following ways:

  • Additional Special Needs Support – deployment of TAs and SEN professional support

  • Resources for extra support for identified areas of concern

  • Nurture provision

  • Funding to subsidise school trips and the residential trip

This has provided children with educational support specific to each child’s needs and also enabled children to access activities that might have been otherwise financially untenable. Modern resources and learning technologies have also been tailored to suit each FSM child’s individual needs. Progress rates have been at least maintained and more often improved, as have confidence and self-esteem.

The report prepared by the school under section 317 (5) (a) of EA 1996 (duties of governing bodies in

relation to special educational needs).

Our Governor linked to SEN is Eric Appleton. The SEN Governor meets each term with the school SENCo (Mr Matthew Watson) and any issues are fed back at the full Governing Body meetings.

The report for the academic year 2015-2016 can be accessed from the Special Educational Needs (SEND) tab on our website.

The school’s charging and remissions policy determined under section 457 of EA 1996(7).

Our current policy can be accessed from our website under Whole School Policies >Policies.
