The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to schools from the Department for Education (DfE) to help vulnerable pupils achieve their potential. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals (FSM); those looked after by the Local Authority and children of armed service personnel.
The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and to raise attainment of all pupils. This will include children who are below, at or above in terms of ability. It may also support any other areas of need including social and emotional barriers to learning. The pupil premium funding settlement is calculated based on the number of children who are known to have been eligible for free school meals at any time during the last six years, known as Ever6.
At Sulivan we have high aspirations and ambitions for all our children.
- We are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential.
- Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to diminish the differences between pupil groups.
- As a school we consistently track all pupils to ensure that they make good or better progress. Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress.
- Once at age related expectations we always continue to extend that learning further to ensure that they reach higher levels of attainment.
- We closely monitor how we are spending the allocated funds to ensure they are having an impact on pupil premium pupil’s achievement.
