The pupil premium is allocated to schools for:

  • Children of statutory school age from low income families who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months
  • Children whose parents are currently working in the armed forces

Our context:

  • Thanet is located in an area of high social deprivation where 88.7% of our children live in the bottom 10% of most disadvantaged homes nationally.  36% of children are regarded as ‘Ever 6’ and as a result of this, we receive a significant amount of Pupil Premium funding.
  • Whilst we have a high number of children who attract the Pupil Premium we also have a significant proportion who do not, but live in homes which reflect high levels of deprivation. The parents of these children may not fulfil the eligibility criteria as they make a conscience effort to work albeit in very low paid employment rather than claim benefits. A small minority of parents choose not to register their entitlement. As a result some of the support funded by our Pupil Premium will benefit all children.

During 2017-18 Thanet will receive £213,080 (including £3,900 EYPP) Pupil Premium funding.  The table below shows how we have planned to spend the pupil premium money over the coming year and enables us to inform parents, carers and governors of the impact it has on pupil achievement.

 

School Priority:

To close the gap between those children who attract the Pupil Premium and ‘others’-especially by the end of Early Years and KS 2

To remove barriers to learning so that the % of pupil premium pupils working at ARE increases

To increase the % of PP children achieving at GD
