Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium Grant?

Pupil Premium is a Government grant given in addition to main school funding.  It is given to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium was first introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been:

  •  Registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years.

  •  Looked after continuously for more than six months

  • Children adopted from care under the Adoption and ChildrenAct 2002 and children who have left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order

  •  Children of service personnel.

The Pupil Premium Grant is provided to schools as part of their annual budget. It is then up to each school to decide how to use the funding, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.

Pupil Premium Plus grant is also available to schools, where a pupil has been looked after and is now adopted.

 

At Hounslow Town Primary the Pupil Premium Grant has been aimed at:
 

  • Supporting children in their basic skills development using a team of Higher Level Teaching Assistants.
  • The removal of some barriers to their learning, arising from inequality
  • Specific intervention strategies to improve their rate of progress and to raise attainment

 

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding in school.

How well are our disadvantaged pupils achieving 

as a result of our actions?

 

We are successfully closing the gaps.

 

  • At the nationally expected level in Year 6 (L4+) in 2014, the gap between the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and other pupils narrowed in Reading, Writing and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar. It remained the same as in 2013 in Maths.
  • At the end of Year 2, the gap between the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and other pupils narrowed in all areas at L2c+ and in Maths for our more able learners (L3)
  • For our more able learners at the end of Key Stage 2, the gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and other pupils narrowed in Maths and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar in 2014
