Pupil Premium Funding at Rickley Park Primary School

Please see below for our 2017-18 spending plan and the evidence of impact.

Pupil Premium funding is a government policy which allocates additional funding to schools for children in receipt of Free School Meals [FSM] (including children who have been entitled during the last 6 years), Looked After Children and children of Forces families.  The core purpose of this funding is to address some of the issues associated with social disadvantage and, in particular, in narrowing any gaps in attainment (between children entitled to FSM and children not entitled to FSM) where they exist.

As the provision is targeted at identified need, not all children will access all provisions.  Access will depend on:

· Current attainment and progress;

· Identified needs and additional provision already in place (as identified by class teachers through Pupil Progress Meetings); and

· Discussion with parents. 


The Pupil Premium Policy also identifies how the effectiveness of these provisions will be monitored by the school and the Governing Body.
