Pupil Premium Funding

Markington CE Primary Pupil Premium Strategy 2018 - 19 and Impact Review

Pupil Premium Funding:

Pupil premium is a form of funding in addition to main school funding, to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium is allocated directly to schools. It is for schools to decide how the funding will be spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the pupils for whom they are responsible. The funding is allocated to schools per FSM pupil. The intended outcome is to close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

Our Pupil Premium Strategy

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.  Pupil Premium has now also been extended to pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last 6 years.

DFE (Department for Education) Funding for financial year 2018 to 2019

DfE will allocate PPG to schools and local authorities (who must allocate for each FTE pupil on the January 2018 school census, at each school they maintain) the following amounts:

  • £1,320 per pupil for each Ever 6 FSM FTE pupil aged 4 and over in year groups reception to year 6, except where the pupil is allocated the LAC (Looked After Children) or post-LAC premium
  • £2,300 per pupil for each post-LAC in year groups reception to year 11
  • £300 for each pupil aged 4 and over in year groups reception to year 11 who is either Ever 6 service child FTE or in receipt of pensions under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) and the War Pensions Scheme (WPS)

For pupils recorded aged 5 and over on the school census, PPG will be allocated on the basis of sole and dual main registrations only.

At Markington, we recognise that learning to learn skills (metacognition) form a fundamental bedrock for all children. Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of current cohorts and is delivered in a flexible manner to engage all children.

We take time to know our children and understand their individual needs, enabling us to identify those at risk of falling behind and those who need additional support to broaden aspirations and love learning.
