Pupil premium

You must publish a strategy for the school’s use of the pupil premium. You no longer have to publish a ‘pupil premium statement’.

For the current academic year, you must include:

  • your school’s pupil premium grant allocation amount
  • a summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school
  • how you’ll spend the pupil premium to overcome those barriers and the reasons for that approach

  • the date of the next review of the school’s pupil premium strategy

For the previous academic year, you must include:

  • how you spent the pupil premium allocation
  • the effect of the expenditure on eligible and other pupils

Pupil premium funding is allocated for each financial year, but the information you publish online should refer to the academic year, as this is how parents understand the school system.

As you won’t know allocations for the end of the academic year (April to July), you should report on the funding up to the end of the financial year and update it when you have all the figures.

The Teaching Schools Council has published templates to support schools in presenting their pupil premium strategies. Use of the templates is voluntary.

 

The King Street Pupil Premium Statement can be found within the ‘our school’ section of the website.
