Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

We are free to spend the Pupil Premium as we see fit. However, we will be held accountable by Ofsted for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

We have a statutory responsibility to inform you of what we spend our pupil premium on and the academic performance of pupils who are eligible for this funding.

How went spent our pupil premium financial year 2013-14:

Pupil Premium Funding is money allocated to schools based on the number of pupils in the school eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Service Children and for any Looked After Children.

From 2012-2013, it has been expanded to include children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 Years.

This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their potential, both academically and socially.

In 2013-2014 the school received £39600.

2014-15 pupil premium funding

We will receive £68949 of pupil premium funding for 52 pupils.

Old Heath Primary School Pupil Premium funding was put towards providing the following initiatives:

  • Fund an additional teaching assistant in Early Years. The decision for this investment is based on the Institute of education University of London research report into ‘pupil adult ratio differences and educational progress over reception and key stage one’
  • Fund an additional teaching assistant in Year 1. The decision for this investment is based on the Institute of education University of London research report into ‘pupil adult ratio differences and educational progress over reception and key stage one’
  • 33 weeks of small group tuition. The decision for this investment was based on research from the education endowment foundation
  • Employee and intervention manager for 30 hours a week who will implement specific intervention programmes for individuals and small groups. Oversee other adults deliver intervention programmes ensuring they are delivered correctly. In partnership with our SENCO evaluate the impact on learning each intervention programme, repeating if successful and the need arises.  The decision for this investment was based on research from the education endowment foundation
  • Allocation of funding for extended school activities and enriching the curriculum for 52 pupils
