Pupil Premium Allocation
In 2011 the Government launched its pupil premium funding. ‘Pupil Premium’ is an additional sum of money given to schools based on the number of pupils eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), pupils from service families and ‘Looked After’ children (children in care). From 2012-13, FSM funding was extended to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years (Ever6); the same now applies to service pupils (5 years). The funding is allocated to a range of initiatives aimed at supporting disadvantaged pupils, to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children and to ensure that they reach their full potential in line with their peers and other pupils nationally.
At Stone CE Combined School, we support the achievement of disadvantaged children by:
- Ensuring a whole school ethos of attainment for all
- Analysing data and responding to evidence
- Meeting individual learning needs
- Deploying staff effectively
- Providing high quality teaching for all
- Addressing issues relating to behaviour, attendance and punctuality
- Ensuring clear and responsive leadership
How do parents register their child’s entitlement for Pupil Premium?
The school office can carry out a simple eligibility check or you can speak, in confidence, to Mrs D Morrison, Headteacher, or Mrs S Hale, Deputy Headteacher.
Please see the attached strategy report for a review of pupil premium spend for the previous academic year and a plan for this year’s spend.
