Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


Pupil Premium at The Cranbourne Primary School


Pupil Premium money is allocated to the school for each child currently on free school meals, those who have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years, looked after children and children adopted from care.



  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils

  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed

  • In making provision for vulnerable children, we recognise that not all these pupil will be socially disadvantaged.

  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are necessarily in one of the above categories. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils to narrow achievement gaps.

  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children in the above categories will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.



    The range of provision the Governors may consider includes, but will not be restricted to:

  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focussed on overcoming gaps in learning

  • Providing extra suport in class from qualified teachers

  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through TAs or external agencies

  • Providing financial support to families to enable children to take part in learning experiences they may otherwise miss out on.

  • Providing support in development of social skills and emotional wellbeing which will have an impact on learning.

  • Our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. Primarily this will be in English and maths.

  • Providing out of school activities for children

  • Providing family support

  • The Governors of the school will publish information on how they have used their Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’



Pupil Premium 2015-16

We receive our funding per financial year, but report in academic years, therefore at present can only state our grant for the academic year 2015-16 until April 2015: £53,900.


This will be spent in the following ways:

  • Staff salaries for small group provision to narrow the gap in phonics, reading, writing and maths. This will be for children whose progress needs to be accelerated whether they are eligible for PPG or not.
  • Staff salaries to run our Early Birds and Nurture groups.
  • Provision of counselling service.
  • Support for families to send their children on residential and other trips which the children would not otherwise be able to experience.
