Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium Funding ?

The pupil premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The amount received is dependent on the number of children who are eligible (these include those children looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel) and have claimed for free school meals at any time in the last six years (this categorisation changed in 2012).  All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.

Principles for the Allocation at Parkhead Primary School

  • We organise teaching and learning at Parkhead in order to meet the needs of all children in the best way.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.
  • We aim for ALL Children to achieve mastery level in all subjects and support children (particularly disadvantaged) on their journey to achieving this.
  • We will allocate Pupil Premium funding after a needs analysis to identify priority groups and individuals as you will see in our Pupil Premium Allocation plans below.
