PUPIL PREMIUM GRANT
The Directors of SSET, Governors and all members of staff accept responsibility for all pupils including ‘socially disadvantaged’ pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within the school environment. The Pupil Premium Grant, which is additional to main school funding, is seen by the government as the best way 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 to schools and is clearly identifiable. Academies and schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. Norfolk CPS is committed to ‘Closing the Gap’ for all pupils and the Pupil Premium allows us to fund activities and resources as a vital part of that process for those identified pupils. The Directors of SSET and governors reserve the right to allocate the pupil premium funding to support any pupils or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
Provision will be made through
- Facilitating pupils’ access to education
- Facilitating pupils’ access to the curriculum
- Alternative support and intervention within the school
Reporting Pupil Premium
It is the responsibility of the governors to explain pupil premium expenditure to parents in the form of an annual statement. There is no set format for the report of pupil premium. Norfolk CPS will publish details of a report online annually from September 2012. This report aims to detail information on how Pupil Premium has been used within school. This report will detail the attainment and progress of pupils who are covered by the premium and the intervention that has been supported by the additional funding. Reports will also detail the progress made towards narrowing the gap and this will be supported by reported data and academic progress. Regular reports will be presented on the progress of pupils supported by Pupil Premium to the Governing Body at Norfolk Community Primary School.
