Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium Grant?
The Pupil Premium Grant provides funding for two purposes;

· raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential

· supporting children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces

The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been eligible within the past 6 years (Ever 6), have been adopted and any pupil who has been 'Looked After' (in care) for 6 months or more. A smaller amount is allocated for children of service families. This entitlement is for Reception to Year 6. In April 2015 the Early Years Pupil Premium was introduced for Nursery children, this is currently set at £300 per year.

At Crowle Primary Academy we have children who meet this criteria and additional funding to support their progress is welcomed. The funding allows us to support the progress of all pupils, as we can offer staff and resources that benefit everyone, but we are also able to target specific pupils where necessary.

It is important that if you are in a family that may be eligible for free school meals you claim for them. The school does not automatically get the money so if you do not claim then the school and all children lose out on this additional funding. The school office can easily help you with this.

Funding per pupil 2018-2019

Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 recorded as Ever 6 free school meals


Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority



Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order



Pupils in year groups reception to year 11 recorded as Ever 6 service child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence



It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils.

Please see below for information regarding the plans for spending our allocation this year. We will measure the impact of this spending by tracking the children's progress and attainment carefully.

The spending plan is reviewed and monitored regularly.

The next review of the impact of the plan is at the end of the 2019- 2020 academic year.
