Pupil Premium

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. This grant, which is additional to main school funding, is seen by the government as 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. The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

At Christ Church CE Primary School we support all our pupils. We do this by providing high quality classroom teaching supplemented by interventions to support

vulnerable learners as and when required. The School Leadership Team and Governing Body monitor the impact of all spending and interventions, including the Pupil Premium.

Commentary: At Christ Church the number of pupils eligible for the pupil premium in 2014-15 was 29 which was around 9% of pupils. Each child, therefore, carries a significant percentage when calculating ARE.

 

The percentage of each cohort achieving Age Related Expectations is listed here for comparison in addition to a comparison with the previous year. 18 out of 24 cohorts listed above had greater percentages achieving ARE when compared with the previous year.
