Pupil Premium Information November 2016
The Pupil Premium is government funding which is given to schools based on the number of children from families who are eligible for FSM (at any time within the last 6 years), or those who are classified as being ‘looked after’(continuously for more than 6 months) or children of parents in the Forces.
William Davis Primary School has children with a wide variety of needs. Of the total number of children on the school roll (RoL November 2016) 58.3% of our pupils (R-Yr6) qualify for Pupil Premium. The funding is to ensure that children in this group achieve in line with other groups. At William Davis Primary School they do by the end of KS2, so we know that we are using the pupil premium effectively.
Identification and Allocation of support
The school is clear that all children should be enabled to achieve to their full potential.
At William Davis Primary School detailed records are kept of children’s progress and attainment to ensure the progress of all pupils. Pupils needing additional support are identified through regular target setting meetings in phase groups; with the head, deputy and SENCO at Pupil Progress meetings; with other members of staff and external agencies.
Pupil Premium allocation for William Davis Primary School in 2016-17 was £156,343. However with adjustments made in July 2016 it is now £146,184.00. This is a reduction of just over £37,000 from the 2015-16 allocation which was £183,441. This was an anticipated adjustment due to losing the “blip class”; in addition there has been a reduction in the number of children and families meeting the criteria for FSM (from 63% to 58%).
This revised total of £146,184.00 includes: £142,560 for R-Y6 children; and £3,624 for Early Years Premium (Nursery).
Pupil Premium funding enables us to do the following. See table below.
