Pupil Premium Strategy
What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is funding allocated to allocated schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low-income families. Funding is based on children who have registered for a free school meal at any point in the last 6 years, children who are in care or adopted, and children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds.
Our Pupil Premium funding for the 2017-18 financial year is projected as:
Free School Meals / Ever 6: pupils @ = £13,538
Our Early Years Pupil Premium funding is projected to be:
Looked After / Post Looked After or Service Children.
Total Amount: £19,238
Identified Barriers to Educational Achievement
At Homefields Primary School we value the abilities and achievements of all our pupils, and are committed to providing each pupil with the best possible environment for learning. We recognise that each child is unique and will have different needs, which may well vary throughout their time in the school. We have planned to spend our Pupil Premium funding to try to give them all the support that they need to “Step up and achieve their potential"
Homefields Primary School has identified the following as barriers to achievement for many of our children:
