PUPIL PREMIUM STATEMENT
The Pupil Premium is a grant given to schools which is additional to main school funding. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM). In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any time within the past six years. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support low income families. This information must be published on the school website.
Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.
Pupil Premium allocation for School Funding Year beginning September 2013 was : £1,112
For the Year beginning September 2014: £1,982
For the Year beginning September 2015: £1,980
For the Year beginning September 2016: £1,320
At Mosaic Jewish Primary School funding is targeted at narrowing the attainment gaps between learners.
The range of provision the Governors consider making for this group include:
- Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning or accelerating learning;
- 1-1 support;
- Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through trained TAs or external agencies;
- Extra-curricular opportunities or access to enhancement activities which support pupil weaknesses or enhance strengths.
Funding has been and will be used for access to enhancement activities and extra-curricular opportunities to help raise self-esteem.
Impact: following the Summer term and a review of data, the impact of the pupil premium provision is made. Because of the small numbers of children who are eligible for pupil premium, impact is reported to the Governing Body and not published on the website.
If your child does not have free school meals but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the school office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish for your child to have a free school meal, registering them will enable the school to claim pupil premium funding that will benefit your child.
