Pupil Premium Statement
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium funding, which is additional to the main school funding, is the best way to address inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and those children who are not. Pupil Premium funding is therefore used to tackle disadvantage in order to reach the pupils who need it most. Schools are funded @ £1320 (previously £1300) per pupil for those whose families have registered for FSM. This includes any children who have been registered for FSM at any point during the past 6 years.
We are free to decide how to spend the funding but we are held accountable for the decisions we make. It is not linked to a specific child but used for overall impact.
Evaluation of impact from 2015/2016
The evidence gathered through the school's self-evaluation has shown that the intervention strategies have been very successful and that they have had a very positive impact on the progress, standards and achievement of those. As a result out pupil premium children at key stage 1 and 2 all made at least good progress.
The total Pupil Premium funding for Cranleigh Primary School for the financial year 2015/16 was £58,080.
Funding Allocation 2016 / 2017
The total Pupil Premium funding for Cranleigh Primary School for the financial year 2016/17 is £67,820 for 52 children (including service pupil premium).
How we intend to meet the needs of our children:
- Funding for an Inclusion Leader providing: breakfast club, groups for emotional support, nurture groups, anger management
- 1:1 tuition in mathematics
- 1:1 tuition in English
- More able maths group
- More able English group
- TA training and support for all classes
- Focused intervention groups and booster groups to support specific needs in reading, writing and maths
- Financial support funding e.g. enrichment and school trips
Monitoring and assessment meetings are held regularly for all pupils. From the above strategies and interventions we would expect to see that FSM pupils are:
- Improving their levels of attainment and progress both individually, and closing the gap against their peers and national expectations.
- Have full access to the curriculum
- Have improved access to extra-curricular activities
- Have improved learning behaviours and readiness to learn.
