Parents  »  Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium was introduced by the Department of Education in 2011. It is additional funding allocated to the school to support groups of children who are vulnerable to possible under achievement. Pupils School Census who have been eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in the last 6 years, known as Ever 6 FSM and children who have been looked after by the Local Authority continuously for more than six months will attract the Pupil Premium funding.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of these pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.

Total number of pupils on roll 473 (Autumn 2015)

The amount of Pupil Premium Clayton CE Primary School received for the financial year 2015/2016 is £137,513 based on 114 eligible pupils.

At Clayton CE Primary School we are committed to narrowing the gap in attainment for our most vulnerable pupils. Our pupil premium allocation is being spent on:
  • Extra staffing and resources in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1
  • Extra staffing for intervention groups in Key Stage 2
  • Booster classes and holiday club in Upper Key Stage 2
  • A Learning Mentor and Pastoral Worker to support children and our families
  • Outdoor Learning Coordinator
  • Enrichment activities and after school clubs
  • Breakfast club and SATs breakfast
  • Subsidising educational visits, including the residential visits
  • New Home Reading and Phonics resources

OFSTED (Sept 12) said

Pupils who are known to be eligible for extra funding (the pupil premium) also do well as a result of a range of interventions and extra facilities.

If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family's income level, please contact the office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child.
