Pupil Premium

Woden Pupil premium strategy statement

The government introduced Pupil Premium with the aim of increasing social mobility, reducing the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally and enabling more pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to attend university.

Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.

Pupil Premium is additional funding received by schools for each pupil from disadvantaged families or background. The funding brings in £1320 per pupil. It is allocated to schools, based on the number of children who are known to have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. This is one of the government’s key educational policies. It is based on the findings that show that, as a group, children who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in time, have consistently lower attainment than those who have never been eligible. It also includes children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children where a parent serves in the armed forces.

Levels of deprivation at Woden Primary are significantly higher than nationally and the proportion of Pupil Premium children at 29.2% is well above the National figure of 25%. Furthermore, a significant proportion of other children are just above the threshold or unable to apply for free school meals. Even if a pupil does not have a school dinner, it is vital for a school to know if they are entitled to a free school meal.

Schools are free to determine how they spend this funding but are obliged to publish information about how the money is spent.

We have worked hard to ensure that the maximum number of pupils benefit from this funding.

How Impact will be measured?

The school will evaluate the impact on each pupil from termly Teacher Assessment. This will be recorded and discussed as part of our Termly Pupil Progress meetings, the results of which will be fed in the following term’s Intervention provision (RAP).

We will measure progress and attainment in reading, writing and maths as a result of intervention and additional support.
