EYRESCROFT PRIMARY SCHOOL
PUPIL PREMIUM GRANT
The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to schools and academies to:
raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
support children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.
It was first introduced in April 2011. Since then the amount schools and academies receive has increased. Schools and academies will receive funding based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (Ever6).
FUNDING ALLOCATION FOR 2021-2022
£1,345 for each eligible primary aged pupil
£2,345 for each Looked After Child
£310 for each Service Child
RECOVERY PREMIUM FOR 2021-2022
This year we have been provided with a recovery premium which is used alongside the Pupil Premium funding and is included in the strategy statement. Disproportionally high impact of COVID-19 on the education of disadvantaged pupils makes this more important than ever.
Eyrescroft is a diverse primary school with 49% of pupils being eligible for the Pupil Premium Funding. 22% of our eligible pupils have a Special Educational Need. 34% have English as an additional language.
We believe a multi-faceted approach offers the best opportunity for eligible pupils to succeed and the gap between eligible and non-eligible pupils closes. We believe the key to narrowing the gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils is thorough Quality First Teaching. The school regularly monitors the impact of actions and interventions through observations, pupil interviews, work scrutiny as well as tracking of pupil attainment and progress.
