Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It is a school-level grant that gives schools extra resources to help them meet challenges, including those arising from deprivation. Schools receive this additional funding for those students who fall within the below categories or have done so at any time within the last six years:

  • those who qualify for free school meals
  • are receiving a child pension from the Ministry of Defence
  • are a looked after child
  • are adopted from care or have entered into special guardianship
  • have a residence order
  • children from the families of services personnel (at any stage in the last four years)

The school receives the following levels of Pupil Premium Grant for each student:

  • FSM Ever 6 £955
  • Service children £310
  • Looked after child £2345
  • Adopted from care or Special Guardianship or Residence order £2345

It is allocated for schools to:

  • improve the academic outcomes of disadvantaged students of all abilities
  • close the attainment gap between disadvantaged students and their peers across the country

Schools receive funding for each disadvantaged student and can use the funding flexibly, in the best interests of eligible students. GLF leaders draw upon an evidence based approach to apply a ‘tiered’ approach to delivering their pupil premium strategy.

Tier 1: supporting training and continuous development to improve the quality of all teaching

Tier 2: targeting support for disadvantaged students through evidence-based interventions

Tier 3: supporting whole-school strategies to improve attendance, behaviour and readiness to learn

Tier4: supporting strategies that develop learning outside of the classroom to promote the development of the whole student

A longer term strategy

From September 2019 schools are encouraged to include a reference to a multi-year strategy that outlines how the school aims to address the needs of Pupil Premium students across all age ranges at the school. This will help school leaders to:

  • take a longer view of the support the grant will provide as students pass through the school
  • align their plans with the wider school improvement strategy

GLF’s Aspiration for All students to Grow, Learn, and Flourish

All GLF Schools are committed to our core remit of providing an outstanding educational experience. Raising the attainment of disadvantaged students is part of our commitment to help all students achieve their full potential.

We aim for:

  • all students to enjoy their learning, attain high outcomes and be helped to become confident individuals and responsible citizens whilst making excellent progress in all respects
  • all students to benefit from an inclusive ethos, excellent teaching and a broad and balanced curriculum underpinned by strong leadership, in a local school
  • all students to be supported and encouraged to lead healthy and active lives

.

Pupil Premium Strategy at Meridian High School

Pupil Premium funding at Meridian High School is used primarily to address the following priorities:

  • To support improved attendance for students who meet the Pupil Premium Criteria.
  • To ensure students benefit from good and outstanding teaching through Lead Practitioners and strong teachers.
  • To support the development of beginning teachers through bespoke CPD, ensuring QFT is targeted to the needs of those who meet the Pupil Premium Criteria.
  • To support the enrichment opportunities for students who meet the Pupil Premium criteria.
  • To narrow the attainment gap between PP and Non PP students when compared to National Data.
