Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is an amount of money allocated by the government to schools for:

  • Children of statutory school age from low income families who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months
  • Children whose parents are currently working in the armed forces

The level of premium received per pupil equates to £1300.

The DFE offer the following guidance on how the Pupil Premium is to be spent:

‘In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility...[Schools] will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families.’

The purpose of the information on this page is to inform parents, carers and governors how much Pupil Premium has been received by the school for 2015/2016, how it will be spent and the impact previous spending has had on pupils’ achievement.

At Eastfield Primary School 19.8% of pupils are eligible for Free School Meals, which is slightly below the National Average of 25.2% (2016).

The effectiveness of the Pupil Premium allocation is monitored on a termly basis. Pupil progress meetings are held with Senior Leaders and class teachers to monitor the impact on individual pupils. Provision is then reviewed and revised when and where necessary to meets the needs of all pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium.
