Pupil Premium

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit.

Every year schools receive additional funding for pupils who are entitled to free school meals, for those who have had free school meals in the past 6 years and for service families.

The purpose of this money is to close the attainment gap between these pupils and others.

Number of pupils eligible for a pupil premium at Preshute Primary School: 11

Total pupil premium income 2017-18: £17,080

How did we spend the money?

  • ELSA support- this helps children develop better self esteem, better social skills etc and to overcome emotional and social barriers to learning.
  • Additional adult support in classrooms, at playtimes, as well as delivering specific intervention programmes.
  • Supporting pupils with the cost of extra curricular activities and residential trips.
  • A focus on 'mastery' in classroom teaching.
