Pupil Premium

MOORSIDE PRIMARY ACADEMY

Pupil Premium statement

The Pupil Premium is funding that is based on the numbers of Looked After Children, Adopted Children, Armed Forces children, and pupils receiving Free School Meals (FSM). Historically, these pupils have made slower progress and achieve lower results than other children. This is a national issue. The purpose of the Pupil Premium is to target support to close this gap in learning progress.

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.”

The way this funding is spent is monitored by the school’s Governing Body and by Ofsted, to ensure the school is doing all it can to secure the best progress possible for these pupils with the funding available.

In 2016-17, 31% of Moorside children had Pupil Premium status, slightly higher than the national average of 25%.

2017-18

 

Governors will finalise and sanction the Pupil Premium strategy for 2017-18 at their September 2017 meeting. Key factors driving a significant change to the strategy are:

 

  • A need to significantly improve attainment of PP children at KS2 and KS1
  • A revision of the impact of intervention strategies and support
  • A drop in PP funding of £20 000
