What’s it all about?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.

How do we decide how to spend it at Nantwich Primary Academy?

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. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used, and the impact of any work done.

Nantwich Primary Academy’s Pupil Premium Aims

Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to narrow the gap between pupil groups. Historically levels of attainment have been lower for FSM* nationally. Through targeted interventions at Nantwich Primary Academy, we work towards eliminating barriers to learning and progress. Our aim for children that start our school with low attainment levels is to ensure that they make accelerated progress, as they move through the school. We also review this frequently, to ensure that pupils stay on track and to provide effective, continued support for those children during their time with us.

*Pupils entitled to Free School Meals provision
