The Pupil Premium is a special funding initiative which targets additional funds to the school for the benefit of children from low-income families. These are identified by known eligibility for Free School Meals (FSM). Children who have been looked after (fostered or in care) continuously for more than six months and pupils from ‘service’ families are also included. Pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last 6 years are also included in the allocation calculation (known as the Ever 6 measure)

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium funding as they wish – but they are held accountable and must report on how the funding has been used to support these groups of children. From September 2012 this information must be made available.

At our school, we realise that not all children who are eligible for Free School Meals are socially disadvantaged and that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged will be registered or qualify for Free School Meals, be looked after or from service families. Therefore, we allocate Pupil Premium funding on a needs basis where we identify priority classes, groups or individuals. We organise teaching and learning at Sigglesthorne Church of England Primary Academy in order to meet the needs of all children in the best way. We allocate some of the Pupil Premium money to make sure all children have their needs met through quality first teaching.

Sigglesthorne Church of England Primary Academy ensures that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met. Sigglesthorne Church of England Primary Academy further supports these groups using many strategies that are beyond the remit of the expenditure report.
