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 reports

As Cranbourne converted to an academy in September 2016, it is technically a new school, however we have decided to keep the Pupil Premium reports from previous years on the website. Please note that after conversion our funding changed from a financial year to an academic year model, therefore the 2015-16 and 2016-17 allocations may not tally. All information from 2016-17 is based on academic year funding.
