The DFE offer the following guidance on how the Pupil Premium is to be spent:
‘In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility…(schools) will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support low income families.’
The purpose of this report is to inform parents, carers and governors how much pupil premium the school received for 2016-17, how it was spent and the impact at had on pupils’ achievement.
The report also explains how the pupil premium will be spent for 2017-2018.
