Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium and Pupil Premium Plus Expenditure

We have high aspirations for all of our pupils at Pebsham Primary Academy and we believe that no child should be left behind with their learning. We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from but your dedication and commitment to learning that makes the difference between success and failure. We are determined to ensuring that every pupil is given the chance to reach their full potential through an exciting curriculum and teaching which is motivating and supports the chances of success.

Pupil Premium Funding is funding given to schools by the Government to support the progress of pupils vulnerable to under-achievement as identified by the Government, such as:

• Children entitled to Free School Meals or those who have been entitled in the last 6 years (Ever 6);

• Children of Armed Service Personnel.

From April 2014, looked after children (LAC), children adopted from care and those who leave care under a special guardianship order attract a higher rate of pupil premium funding – the 'pupil premium plus':

 • Looked After Children;

• Children who have been adopted since 2008;

• Children with a Special Guardianship Order or residence order.

The amount of money, the school receives, is based on the number of pupils eligible. The money is used to fund initiatives that will help those pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially. The ‘Looked-after Children Pupil Premium Grant’ is centrally pooled and managed by the Virtual School to support our looked-after children through both County and school based projects and through a wide range of additional support strategies to meet individual needs. This money does not come into school.
