What is the Pupil Premium Grant?
Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to schools annually and is used in a variety of ways to raise attainment and close the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.
The table below shows how the funding has been allocated in 2014 – 15.
|£1300||Per primary pupil who is currently eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or has been eligible in the past 6 years.|
|£1900||Per looked after child, including pupils who have been in care for one day or more.
Pupils who have been adopted from care or leaving care under a special guardianship or residence order (introduced in 2014).
|£300||Per pupil who has been identified as a services (armed forces) child since 2011.|
“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools…is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils within their responsibilities.” (DfE website)
The funding is therefore given to schools to spend as they think best, although there is a requirement to publish online how this money is spent.

Victoria Infant & Nursery School
The governors at Victoria Infant & Nursery School have agreed that the Pupil Premium Grant allocated to school should be spent to support all vulnerable and/or disadvantaged children in school, in addition to those in receipt of FSM.
At Victoria Infant & Nursery School we are committed to ensuring that all our pupils make the best possible progress. We regularly check the progress of all pupils and do all we can to make sure each child receives the support they need to reach their full potential.
The Pupil Premium Grant has allowed us to continue and extend what we already do at Victoria Infant & Nursery School.
How do we spend the Pupil Premium Grant at Victoria Infant & Nursery School?
The Senior Management Team in school continues to closely monitor the allocation of the Pupil Premium Grant and measure the impact of this spending in relation to positive outcomes for identified children
