Pupil Premium Overview
The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been eligible for FSM at any time over the last six years. A smaller amount is allocated according to the number of pupils who have a family member in the armed services. There is also an allocation for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more.
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 to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils whose circumstances make them eligible for Pupil Premium funding. Please see below for information regarding how this year’s Pupil Premium is being spent and the impact of this funding.
At Bader we aspire to be a true community school, where pupils, parents, teachers, support staff, governors and other community members work together to achieve and celebrate success and progress for every pupil. At Bader the percentage of pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) is well above average. School: 48.2%, Local Authority: 28.9%, National: 19.2%
Pupil premium funding represents a significant proportion of our budget and we are committed to ensuring it is spent to maximum effect.
In the financial year 2012-13 we received £79,413 of Pupil Premium funding overall. In the financial year 2013-14 we received £113,400 of Pupil Premium. Next financial year we will be receiving £182,300.
The DfE has given us the freedom to use the Pupil Premium as we see fit, based upon our knowledge of our pupil needs.
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.
However, we are accountable for the use of this additional funding.
