Dothill Primary School: Pupil Premium Grant Allocation

What is the Pupil Premium Grant?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding that is provided by the Government to help publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and pupils who have one or more parents who are in the armed forces and to close the gap between them and their peers.  Children classed as “disadvantaged” may be or may have been eligible for free school meals, children in care or children who have been but are no longer in the care of the Local Authority.  Some funding is also provided to support children who have parents in the armed forces.

Current funding levels are £1385 for FSM Ever6 children, £2410 for children in care/post care, and £320 for service children.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However all schools will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support eligible pupils. At Dothill, staff and Governors work in partnership to carefully plan how we allocate funding according to the needs of our children to help them to do as well as they can.

The Pupil Premium Strategy is a document which gives a rationale for our spending so that we ensure we are using the money in a way that makes a difference to our pupils.
