Pupil Premium

  • In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is delegated to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). From 2012-13, it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM in any of the previous 6 years. This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially. Pupil Premium is also used for children looked after, children of armed services personnel and children adopted from care.

    At Mordiford CE Primary School we have a relatively small number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals. In the January 2015 census the figure was about 12% of the school roll.

    Pupil Premium 2019-2020 Review

    Some examples of the types of focus for Pupil Premium spending



    • Purchasing of booster material for literacy and numeracy
    • Targeted additional 1:1 support from teaching assistants
    • Structured small group tuition from teaching assistants
    • Provision for children attending trips including residential visits.
    • Inclusion in after-school clubs and peripatetic music sessions



    The impact of Pupil Premium Spending is monitored in some of the following ways…


    • Through rigorous and regular Pupil Progress Meetings the impact of interventions will be tracked to decide whether children entitled to Pupil Premium are making progress, in line with their non-pupil premium peers, in terms of academic progress, self-esteem, physical well-being and attendance
    • Involve whole staff in decisions about what next steps could be taken to narrow the gap for children receiving Pupil Premium
    • Records will be kept and monitored for intervention groups
    • Continue to monitor the specific impact of successful interventions/actions/resourcing
    • Update Governors on a regular basis.
