Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is money which is paid by the Government to Deanshanger Primary school to support groups of pupils with their learning and provide access to a breadth of opportunities; we want to ensure that there are no barriers to success and upper limits placed on achievement. We are aspirational for every child at our school and seek to develop every child so that their success is based on the very best for every child. For this reason, the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is allocated in different ways for all children.

Please click here for the full Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) Strategy for SY 2016-17 including a review of 2015-16

In the school year September 2015 – August 2016, 34 children received the pupil premium grant, 2 received the service premium and 2 children the LAC or post-LAC premium. 14 are eligible for Free School meals.
The school produces a voucher for families to access a portion of the PPG funding each financial year, to choose how they wish to use to it to enrich and support school life. This might be used to purchase new uniform, books, school trips, WRAP club (before and after school care) and school clubs.

Evaluating

The Head teacher works with SLT, SENCo and the Business Manager to discuss the use and impact of PPG funding on a regular basis and in depth after internal data captures.
PPG support was reviewed and amended April 2016 in line with an internal review audit and will be reviewed further following the release of SATs results June 2016.
The lead governor for Pupil Premium regularly meets with the Head teacher to evaluate impact and enrichment opportunities.
Data for Pupil Premium learners is separated for analysis by SLT, staff and governors.
