Pupil Premium

Shree Deb

Pupil Premium is allocated to local auhorities and schools with pupils on roll that are known to be disadvantaged.  Disadvantaged pupils in this case are defind as;

  • Those in receipt of free school meals at any time in the past six years
  • Looked after children and those who have left care through adoption or other routes
  • service children who are flagged in the school census or who have been at any point in the last five years

Pupil premium is not allocated to individual pupils – institutions can decide how best to use their overall allocation for the educational benefit of disadvantaged pupils.  Parents are strongly encouraged to register their child as eligible for FSM so that each school receives their maximum Pupil Premium entitlement.  For more information, follow this link to the HCC website The school also receives Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP), which gives extra funding to support disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds.  The funding equates to £302 extra per year for each child who meets the eligibility criteria.

Total number of pupils eligible: 18

Total amount of PPG received: £30,535 

At Bovingdon Primary Academy we take into account the following factors when deciding how to spend Pupil Premium funding:

  • How to use research findings which show relative effectiveness of different interventions
  • How to adapt high quality whole class teaching to meet the needs of all pupils, especially those eligible for Premium funding
  • How to identify the right provision for Pupil Premium pupils: what is effective for one might not be so effective for another
  • How to ensure that Pupil Premium pupils have the opportunity to apply and consolidate what they have learnt in group and individual provision
  • How to enhance provision if the pupil also has special education needs or disabilities (SEND)
  • How to train teachers and teaching assistants so that the needs of all pupils, especially those eligible for Pupil Premium, are met
  • How to allow Pupil Premium pupils full access to an enriched curriculum, including trips and visits, particularly residential.
