Pupil premium is an amount of money that schools are given based on deprivation factors such as free school meals. This money is targeted at children who fall in to this category and enable us to work with them in a way that would not otherwise be possible.
This academic year the school received £164,195.19 in pupil premium monies – this includes Early Years and Looked After Children monies.
We carried £10, 000 forward from last year as the Bug Club resources did not arrive until after the end of the financial year.
The main barriers to underachievement at Salisbury Primary School are:
- Poor linguistic skills – both non-English speakers and where English is a first language
- Lack of experience of environments beyond their locality
- Children attending school without breakfastLack of skills on the part of parents to engage with their children’s learning
There is still £7563.05 contingency that will probably be spent on resources for interventions.
This spending is reviewed at the Governors resources committee meeting once a term.
