Friarswood Primary School

Pupil Premium 

The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

Pupil eligibility for this additional funding is based on them meeting at least one of the following elements:

  • Students who are currently in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM)
  • Students who have been in receipt of FSM at any point in the last 6 years (Ever6)
  • Student who have at least one parent currently serving in the British Armed Forces
  • Students who have been in receipt of care from the local authority (Children looked After / CLA)

Pupil Premium Grant Allocations:

  • FSM and Ever6                                  £1320
  • British Armed Forces                          £300
  • CLA                                                     £1900

At Friarswood Primary School, our aim is to narrow the gap in attainment and educational opportunity between those eligible for pupil premium funding and those who are not.

The proportion of pupils at Friarswood who are eligible for the pupil premium is lower than the national average.  Through consultation with the Headteacher and class teacher and SENCo if appropriate, a decision is made on how to allocate the provision for each individual child.  Monitoring of data and progress is completed half termly and discussions are held with the teacher, Headteacher and SLT with regards to each child’ progress.  Governors monitor pupil premium allocation through discussions with the Headteacher and through the Governors Curriculum and Achievements Committee.
