Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives. The aim of the funding is to ensure that all children, regardless of their economic background, have the same opportunities and academic outcomes. From September 2015, the premium will be worth £1,320 per pupil in receipt of Free School Meals at any point in the last six years. Students in care, who have been looked after by local authorities for more than six months also continue to qualify for the Pupil Premium. Students whose parents are in the armed services are entitled to a Service Premium of £300.

How many pupils at Hatch Beauchamp C of E Primary School are eligible for the Pupil Premium?

Currently 13% of students at Hatch Beauchamp C of E Primary School are eligible for the Pupil Premium compared to 25.7% nationally.

Is there an issue with eligible pupils not applying for FSM?

In Somerset, when a Housing/Council Tax Benefit form is completed, this automatically entitles child(ren) in the family to receive free school meals. The Council inform the Student Services Team and the school of the child’s entitlement to free school meals.

Parents in receipt of Child Tax Credit are required to complete a free school meal application form. If you believe that you qualify for these tax benefits, please complete a form as it may mean additional funding is available for your child at school.

How will the impact of the spending of the Pupil Premium be measured?

To monitor progress on attainment, new measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of students covered by the Pupil Premium. At Hatch Beauchamp C of E School, the usual cycle of data collection and the monitoring and tracking of the cohort’s attainment, will be used to inform student progress and enable the early identification of need, support and appropriate intervention.

 Pupil Premium Priorities:

  1. To ensure quality first teaching for all pupil premium children to ensure progress and attainment for PP children is at least as good as National figures for pupil premium children.
  2. To provide specific interventions where appropriate to ensure progress and attainment is at least as good as National figures for pupil premium children.
  3. To develop self- esteem and build resilience in pupil premium children for whom chaotic home lives present a barrier to learning.
