Pupil Premium 2012 – 2013

Pupil Premium Statement 2012/13

Barton St Peter’s Church of England Primary School

Pupil Premium Statement 2012 – 2013

The pupil premium is allocated to schools by the Government in respect of children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been ‘looked after’ (LAC) continuously for more than six months. This applies to both mainstream and non-mainstream settings. In 2012 – 2013 this will also include pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure)

The level of the pupil premium for 2012-2013 is £600 per pupil for those eligible for FSM or LAC.

It is for schools to decide how the pupil premium, allocated to schools is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for pupils at their school.

Schools are free to spend the pupil premium as they see fit to ‘close the gap’ between children from disadvantaged circumstances and those above the low-income threshold – it is not linked to a specific child but it is used for overall impact.

As of September 2012 – 25.3% of our children are entitled to FSM

As of September 2012 – 0% of our children are LAC

Pupil Premium Allocation for 2012-2013 is £42,600

Our aim is to narrow the gap in attainment and educational opportunity between those children attracting the pupil premium and children from more privileged backgrounds.

This money will be specifically used to support pupils in the following ways –

Provide targeted support especially in Reading, Phonics and Numeracy for small groups of children as well as individuals

Provide targeted support for building social and emotional skills to enable some learners to engage more effectively with learning

One to one teaching to boost attainment in reading

Provide targeted support for Speech and Language provision

Specific training and resources to deliver high quality Phonics lessons
