Pupil Premium

PUPIL PREMIUM FUNDING

The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to support pupils who are entitled to receive free school meals or have been entitled to free school meals in the last 6 years.  Schools also receive pupil premium funding for children who are in care, have been adopted from care or who have a parent in the armed services. The funding is to be used to remove barriers to learning and improve academic attainment.

At Crookhill Primary School, this money is used largely for extra staffing to deliver intervention programmes or support in class. Funding is also used for staff training and resources.  All children who are entitled to pupil premium funding receive an appropriate level of support according to their ability or specific need. 

The Inclusion Manager works with staff to plan, implement and monitor intervention programmes and support across school. In addition to teaching assistants, experienced teachers work with small booster groups for phonics, reading and basic English and Maths skills.

Intended Outcomes:

  • To narrow the gap in attainment between children who are entitled to pupil premium and other pupils

  • To support all children who are entitled to pupil premium to make the best possible progress and achieve the best possible attainment
