What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is funding that is given to schools by the Government to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. In 2012-2013 the Pupil Premium was extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (Ever6 Free School Meals measure). School also receive funding for children who have been in Local Authority care for one day or more, and a smaller amount for the children of service personnel.

Approach

At Cleeve Park School we challenge and support every individual to achieve without limits whatever their background, starting point and aspirations. We use pupil premium funding to make this a reality by:

• Removing barriers to learning for individuals and groups of pupils

• Building the capacity and resilience in pupils to enable them to build their own futures

Below are the priorities, targets, strategies and specific support that have been identified to ensure that our pupils are not disadvantaged by their individual circumstance.

Aim:

The aim of CPS is to close the gap in attainment between disadvantaged students and other students by ensuring that they make exceptional progress throughout the school.

Priorities:

1. Raising attainment of PP-eligible pupils, particularly in Maths.

2. The 5A*-C gap is closed for PP students.

3. Closely monitor PP students’ attainment and progress. Monitor the impact of any interventions put in place. Improve attendance during interventions.

4. Increase the engagement of students during interventions.
