Pupil Premium Information

Pupil Premium is an additional amount of funding allocated to schools by the government to support the learning and progress of children in receipt of free school meals or those looked after by the local authority. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent and they will be held accountable for how this additional funding is impacting on those for whom the money is allocated. 

From April 2012, the government extended pupil premium funding to children eligible for free school meals at any point in the past six years. For the 2015 to 2016 financial year, funding for the pupil premium has increased and schools will receive:

  • £1320 per pupil of primary school age
  • £1900 per pupil who 1)has been looked after for one day or more, 2) has been adopted from care, 3)has left care under a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangements order.


The pupil premium is paid to schools as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need. Ofsted inspections report on how schools' use of funding affects the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils. We also hold schools to account through performance tables, which include data on:
  • the attainment of pupils who attract the funding.
  • the progress made by these pupils.
  • the gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.
Pupil Premium at Spennithorne CE Primary School

The following documents explain how Spennithorne CE Primary School has allocated this and the previous year's Pupil Premium and also how we plan to spend the funding next financial year. 

Due to the size of our school, the potential for identifying pupils through the publishing of any report is inevitably greater. For this reason, it is our policy to publish a basic outline of how we have spent, and plan to spend, our Pupil Premium allocations.



This year, we plan to spend our funds on additional support hours to deliver intervention to assist in closing the gap and training staff in literacy intervention to support reading and writing.
