Pupil Premium

 

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is an amount of money received to enable Cawston Grange to ensure that all children have an equal chance to succeed and fulfil their potential. The Pupil Premium funding is decided by:

  • The number of children who are registered for Free School Meals

  • The number of children who are classed as “looked after children”

  • The number of children from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

The Pupil Premium is used to support these children within school, regardless of their academic ability.

 

 

Pupil Premium in the current academic year 2017-18

This year, there are currently 55 children eligible for the Pupil Premium, which resulted in £63,780 being received by the school.

 

How is the money spent?

Two support teachers are employed to accelerate rapid and sustained progress in the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics, working across all year groups in collaboration with class teachers.

 

A Learning Mentor & Learning Assistants are employed to support pupils in and out of the classroom to build self-esteem, readiness for learning and as a result, to improve learning progress.

 

An ongoing project to investigate how to engage and support more ‘hard to reach’ families in supporting their children, has already begun in September, working with staff from another local school.

 

 

Pupil Premium in the academic Year 2016-17

There were 49 children eligible for the Pupil Premium in 2015-16, which resulted in £46,200 being received by the school.

The main focus of the Pupil Premium spending in 2016-2017 was supporting children in their learning in reading, writing and mathematics. Some work was also done in supporting some EYFS children with their speech and language development.
