Pupil Premium Funding
Schools receive additional funding to raise the attainment gap of disadvantaged children of all abilities and to close the gap between them and their peers. This additional funding is called the Pupil Premium.
Schools receive £1320 additional funding for any pupil who has been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
Schools also receive an additional £300 for children from Services families. An additional £1900 is also given to schools for any pupil who has been adopted, or is in local authority care.
Each year, schools must produce a pupil premium strategy that outlines how this additional funding will be spent and the impact previous spending has had.
For 2017/2018, Sleights Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) Primary School received an additional £31,240 to support disadvantaged pupils. Our strategy for spending this additional funding is available on the school’s website.
The governors responsible for overseeing the use of the Pupil Premium funding are Gemma Kellerman, Gail Wilson and Jo Coomber.
