PUPIL PREMIUM GRANT
Pupil Premium Grant is Government funding allocated to all schools and academies to narrow the attainment gap between pupils eligible for Pupil Premium and those not eligible.
The criteria for Pupil Premium is children who have been in receipt of Free School at any time in the last 6 years and pupils who have left care under a special guardianship order or under a child arrangement/Residency order. Service Pupil Premium (SPP) is allocated to schools for those pupils who have a parent serving in HM Forces or has retired on a pension from The Ministry of Defence.
Schools are responsible for providing additional support for these pupils to enable them to achieve their full potential, and every school must decide on how this grant will be used to ensure this.
At Bushfield Road Infant School, Pupil premium funding is dedicated to ensuring children receive specific support and focused interventions, tailored to their individual needs. The grant is used to raise attainment in reading, writing and maths and also to remove social and emotional barriers which can impact on a child’s ability, self-esteem and motivation to learn. The school identifies a range of strategies to ensure these children make at least good or better progress from their starting points.
