Pupil Premium Strategy

Pupil Premium Evaluation 

Introduction

The Pupil Premium is a government initiative designed to target resources to those pupils deemed to be from a disadvantaged background. Specifically the Pupil Premium money is provided for those pupils who have been on Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (Ever6)

Additionally schools will receive £2,300 for any pupil:

  • identified in the January 2020 school census or the alternative provision census as having left local authority care as a result of:

    • adoption

    • a special guardianship order

    • a child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order)

  • who has been in local authority care for 1 day or more

  • recorded as both eligible for FSM in the last 6 years and as being looked after (or as having left local authority care)

Funding and Accountability for Schools


Government agencies have not dictated how the Pupil Premium Grant should be spent, but what is clear is that the money should be used to promote strategies which narrow the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils.

The core principles upon which we  utilise the Pupil Premium Grant at The Angmering School are:

  • To ensure the continued improvement of Quality First Teaching with a particular focus on  feedback and metacognition.

  • To track, monitor and intervene effectively so that we support attendance, engagement in learning and progress.

  • To provide activities which improve the engagement of students in learning.

  • To provide tailored curriculum approaches for students in line with our inclusive philosophy.

  • To provide for the needs of disadvantaged students, including physical materials and emotional support.

In summary; by personalising the provision for disadvantaged students, by   targeting resources, we believe we can improve progress and create success for individuals.
