Pupil Premium funding was launched by the Government in 2011 to enable schools to support children in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM). This was extended in 2013 to include children who have received FSM at any time during the previous six years.
At Polperro Primary School we have allocated our Pupil Premium funding with the aim of closing the attainment gap between children in receipt of FSM and their peers.
Pupil Premium Funding 2017-18:
Polperro Primary Academy was allocated £26,400 in Pupil Premium funding for the academic year 2017-18.
This funding was allocated to provide:
• Small group teacher led support which provides children with short additional teaching sessions in reading, writing or mathematics
• Additional teaching assistant hours to support pupil premium children within the class (as supported by pupil conferencing information)
• Additional lunch time supervision to support children in having a constructive lunch break and support pupils in resolving conflicts
• Teacher/pupil conferencing, where children are able to share their ideas on how they can be further supported in accelerating their progress
• Pupil review meetings to plan appropriate support
• Higher Attainers maths, reading and writing extension support
• Subsidisation of breakfast club
• Continuation of a 5 class structure (partially funded by the Pupil Premium) to support high quality feedback
• Weekly music lessons (guitar)
• Additional hours to support Headstart and Thrive programmes
• Please see our Pupil Premium Impact Statement to view details of how effective we were in diminishing differences.
The Chair of Governors (Lucy Finnimore) and Pupil Premium Governor (Helen Casson) are responsible for monitoring the impact of Premium Funding and reports to the full Governing Body are made each term.
