What is the Pupil Premium Grant?

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. It is additional funding allocated to schools to raise the attainment of pupils from low income families and are eligible for Free school Meals. It also covers children who are in care and looked after children. A service premium has been introduced for children whose parents are serving in the armed forces. Schools can decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

How we use our Pupil Premium Grant

At Oatlands Junior School we use the allocated Pupil Premium Grant to help support the education of those children who are eligible for Free School Meals or for children who are Looked After. Our overall aim is to use the Pupil Premium to provide equal opportunities and narrow attainment gaps. We use this premium in a number of ways:

1. Primarily to provide targeted teacher intervention and additional teaching assistant time to support children develop the basic skills of reading, writing and maths.

2. To provide financial support, for example to help pay for school visits or swimming lessons.

3. To provide support for children who may need to further develop their wider skills. This may be small group activities, communication skills, confidence activities or targeting children to attend extra-curricular clubs.
