Pupil Premium funding is additional funding provided by the government to schools to support eligible children and their families
Its aim is to raise attainment in these pupils. Schools will receive £1,320 per primary aged pupil in 2016/17
Schools will also receive the Early Years Pupil Premium for eligible children aged 3-4. This is £300 per annum in 2016/17.
Schools are free to choose how to spend pupil premium in the way that they think will best support those children, in a number of ways: academically, pastorally and in providing financial assistance.
Ofsted inspections report on how schools’ use of the funding affects the attainment of their disadvantaged pupil.
Waterloo Primary Academy’s Pupil Premium’s allocation 2016 – 2017 was £419,760
Impact of Pupil Premium
- Supplementary teachers within the academy enable children to receive more focussed teaching. As done a range of additional 1:1 sessions in Maths and English.
- We provide support for disadvantaged students by accessing other agencies such as social services, CAMHs, family support services, pupil referral units and other agencies where necessary. We are looking to continue to develop links with community groups that further support this work.
- Early intervention has again had a positive impact in Nursery and Early Years. Interventions and fluidity between Early Years continues to flourish with many children receiving the targeted and specific support that is required.
- Extra-curricular sessions and outdoor education continue to provide the pupils at Waterloo with exciting experiences, independence, challenge, self-esteem and a set of new skills (often unique to primary aged children).
