Barriers to Future Attainment (for pupils eligible for PP including high ability)
The government continues to provide funding targeted at addressing underlying inequalities and aiming to tackle the disadvantages that some children experience in life. As a school we use the money carefully to ensure that our vulnerable children achieved the best support possible. One of the measures for assessing the impact of this funding is to look at those children who claim free school meals (FSM). Our OFSTED inspection in June 2016 stated that, Pupil premium funding is used effectively to enable disadvantaged pupils to make good progress from their starting points. Clear and specific planning for the use of the funding is focused on narrowing gaps.”
In-school Barriers
A. Communication and literacy skills along with fine motor control are weaker areas for children in receipt of PP funding on entry to FS 2 (Reception).
B. A lack of exposure to rich and varied language can slow down progress in English for pupil premium children across the school.
C. Children may present with behavioural, social or emotional immaturity which can act as a barrier to learning and low self- esteem especially across KS1.
D. Higher achieving children entitled to pupil premium often make less progress than other higher ability pupils across Key Stage 1.
External Barriers
E. Limited access to rich and varied life experiences having an adverse effect on child and parent aspiration.
F. Poorer attendance and lateness of children entitled to Pupil Premium compared to that of non-pupil premium children.

How can parents and guardians contribute to the success of the Pupil Premium Funding?

All children in the Reception year and in Years 1 & 2 can have a free school lunch which is funded directly from the government. This is different from ‘free school meals entitlement’.

If your child is eligible for free school meals it is worth registering them as it will have a direct impact on the funding we receive and will maximise the support we can provide. Parental support and involvement is a key factor in ensuring that children make good progress and leave primary school with a good level of literacy and numeracy.

Your child may be entitled to Free School Meals if you are in receipt of the following:

•Income Support
•Income based Jobseekers Allowance
•Income related Employment and Support Allowance
•Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
•The Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
•Child Tax Credit, providing that you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
•Working Tax Credit ‘run-on’ – the payment someone may receive for a further four weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
