Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium money is allocated to the school for each child currently on free school meals, those pupils who have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years and looked after children. Pupil Premium funding has played an important role in changing perceptions and creating a focus on preventing disadvantaged pupils falling behind their peers.

To find out if your child is eligible for Pupil Premium Funding please go to... 

The Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support raising the attainment of the most vulnerable pupils and this is recorded in a Pupil Premium Strategy reviewed yearly.

For children in receipt of Pupil Premium funding, whilst a whole school approach to quality first teaching sets high aspirations for all pupils, additional barriers to learning are identified, targets are set and intervention is taken to raise standards and allow disadvantaged groups or individuals to achieve their full potential. The impact is measured over a period of time and new actions completed depending on the needs of individuals.

Other groups focused on within our Pupil Premium Strategy include looked after children, adopted children and service children.

In November 2018 Wesley Methodist Primary School was part of an effective pupil premium review which enables teachers and school leaders to make even more effective use of the pupil premium to raise standards for all disadvantaged pupils so that they can achieve their full potential.
