Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools by the government to support the most vulnerable children. These are defined as those in receipt of free school meals and children who are Looked After(LAC). It is for schools to decide the detail of how the allocated Pupil Premium is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils.


The level of the premium in was 2013 /14 is £953 per pupil for pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) and for pupils in care who have been continuously looked after for six months.


At Cliffe VC  Primary Pupil Premium money is used to ensure all who receive free school meals and Looked After Children ( children in local authority care) are supported in making at least good academic progress, defined as a minimum of 1full level every 2 years.


How this money was spent:


The Pupil Premium provides some funds towards an additional Teacher  Assistant to provide small group teaching as well as individual support for targeted pupils.


We have also purchased specific learning resources to enhance and support learning, including the purchase of ipads.


Many school trips, including Residential visits, for our vulnerable children (LAC and FSM) have also been subsidised and will continue to do so this year. Our school values


life experiences and our staff know how much vulnerable children gain from visits to aid their learning.


Several children also had after school activities funded. These ranged from sporting, drama, art and craft clubs.


Cliffe VC Primary School has improved  provision over the last two years  and we are very proud of our pupils’ achievements. All pupils eligible for pupil premium funding who left our Year 6 in  2013 made at least expected  progress and some with very good progress. The additional funding has assisted us in achieving that goal.


We intend to spend the funding for next year through:

  • 1:1 support for identified vulnerable children
  • Play Leader employed at lunchtime
  • Additional teaching support in literacy and maths (targeted small groups)
  • Training staff for Maths intervention programs
  • Emotional and social intervention groups
  • Enrichment – supporting school visits ( including residential visits) and clubs for specific pupils on pupil premium ( Social, Art, Music and Sports).
  • IT technology ( IT tablets)

Impact of Pupil Premium

The support put in place, as appropriate, for children receiving free school meals results in them making expected or above expected progress over time. Regular assessments and close monitoring of the results achieved by children receiving free school meals and Looked after children ensures that they are provided with the necessary support offered by one of our interventions. In 2013, almost all pupils made expected, with 50% of cohort exceeding levels of expected progress in one area of reading, maths or writing. All children at end of key stage 1 and key stage 2 reached, or exceeded national expected levels of attainment. This supports high standards and achievement for pupils eligible for pupil premium.


For many children, the impact of pupil premium funding goes beyond academic achievement in reading, writing and maths. They have been offered memorable and enhanced learning opportunities, both within and outside the school day. As a result the children have high levels of self-esteem and confidence and feel prepared for their next stage in education. Their attainment and achievements are a reflection of this.
