1. Information about Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is allocated to schools to support the learning of children from low-income families. These are children who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been ‘looked after’ continuously for more than six months.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

The Government has decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium will be extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years.

Schools are held accountable for how they have used Pupil Premium funding in support of the learning of pupils from low income families. 

For us at Parkside possible barriers to the success include parents telling us that they just don't have time to listen to them read or that they don't know how to help them.

  • 4. Reviews

    This expenditure is reviewed by SLT and our Inclusion Manager three times a year (October, February, July) and Governors twice a year. 


    The impact of this funding is the focus of pupil progress meetings held with the class teachers three times a year. Support is then adjusted to ensure it has maximum impact.

    7. Impact on Data 2015 - 2016:

    The school’s data shows that, over 2015-2016, the progress of children with FSM was equal to those children who are not receiving FSM. Therefore with this cohort the gap between these groups has been closed. Overall, the progress of the FSM children is inline with the previous years data.

    The very small number of children didn't perform as well as children without pupil premium funding.
    However, they are above the National Average for expected achievement which is 100.

    The school is committed to improving achievement of all pupils and narrowing the gaps between outcomes of children eligible to FSM and those from wealthier families.
