Emsworth Primary School Pupil Premium Strategy Statement

The Pupil Premium Grant is central government funding paid to schools and is designed to support additional provision for students in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) now or at any point in the last six years. It is part of recognition nationally and internationally that economic disadvantage has a negative impact on student attainment. The Pupil Premium, therefore, should be used to close the gap between these students and is aimed to eradicate any disadvantage. At Emsworth Primary School each child is treated as an individual and interventions are tracked on an individual basis. Each child’s progress is tracked rigorously and interventions are put in place in order to close any gaps.

The Department for Education will allocate the following amounts for 2019/20:

  • £1,320 per pupil for those who have been entitled to free school meals at any time in their primary schooling
  • £2,300 per pupil for looked after children by the Local Authority (from April 2020, the new rate will be £2,345 per eligible pupil)
  • £2,300 per pupil for those who were looked after by the LA and are now subject to adoption, special guardianship, child arrangement or residents order (from April 2020, the new rate will be £2,345 per eligible pupil)
  • £300 per pupil for those who have a parent in the regular armed forces (from April 2020 the new service premium rate will be £310 per head).

The grant may be spent in the following ways:

  • for the purposes of the school e.g. for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school
  • for the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies
  • on community facilities e.g. services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated

Pupil Premium Strategy

The main barriers for PP eligible pupils in our school are:

  • limited vocabulary and language skills which affects reading and writing progress and attainment
  • lack of concentration and limited attention span which hinders engagement within lessons (readiness to learn)
  • limited access to resources and opportunities both in and outside school which creates a limited educational experience 
  • low expectations and aspirations within families
  • lower attendance

The main strategies the school is employing to break down these barriers are:          

  • ensuring we provide first rate quality teaching
  • targeted intervention where necessary
  • welfare and pastoral care
  • adding and enriching experiences
