Pupil Premium allocation, use and impact on attainment
At Ash Church of England Primary School, we believe 9% of children are entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) and 4% of children come from vulnerable groups. We have 5% of our children from service families. We use the pupil premium funding to run programmes to target all pupils who are disadvantaged or underachieving. We ensure that all children who are entitled benefit from the funding.
The impact on attainment is monitored by the Headteacher and reports are made to the Governing Body. In addition, the School Finance Officer monitors expenditure to show how the money has been spent.
The allocated funding received in pupil premium grant funding for 2017 – 2018 was £17,060 and in this academic year, 2018 – 2019, we expect to receive £33,320 in pupil premium grant funding. The main use of this money is to raise attainment. The way in which the money is used is to identify barriers to learning success, to devise and deliver solutions and to overcome them. We evaluate the impact and plan the next steps for the children involved. The analysis of data at the end of Key Stage 2 (Summer 2018) shows that the pupil premium children have made good progress measures value added from KS1 to KS2.
