The government introduced the Pupil Premium in April 2011. The premium is a specific amount of money awarded for any child who receives free school meals or has been eligible to receive free meals within the previous six years. A grant is also given for any pupils who are in care or have been adopted or have left care under special guardianship or a residential order.
The school will also receive a premium grant for children of any servicemen/women.
The purpose of the Pupil Premium Grant is to enable schools to narrow the attainment gap between children who are regarded as disadvantaged and their peers. Below you will find a report which details our Pupil Premium allocation. We do not publish the attainment outcomes of our pupils receiving the premium as, due to the small number, this would breach confidentiality. If you have a specific and appropriate interest in these outcomes then a discussion can be held with the headteacher.
Pupil Premium Strategy – 2016 -17
|Pupil Premium Grant received||£13,060|
|Total number of pupils entitled to premium||11 (2 pupils receive the Service Premium)|
|The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. The DFE recognises that disadvantaged pupils can face significant barriers to their learning. The percentage of disadvantaged pupils at Lindal and Marton Primary School is very low in comparison to the national average. Each pupil has very individual barriers to their learning and in order to raise their attainment and support any difficulties they may have, we produce individual profiles of our pupils in receipt of the premium and these specify how the pupil premium will be used to support them and why. The profiles are updated termly to track the progress they have made as a result of any interventions.|
|Summary of Grant Expenditure 2016/17:|
Objectives of spending the PPG grant:
To narrow the attainment gap between those children who receive the PPG and are considered by the DFE to be disadvantaged and their peers.

The impact in relation to progress in core subjects will be measured half termly using teacher assessments and termly using a formal assessment task – see scholarpack tracking for progress updates on disadvantaged groups.|
|Additional 13 hours TA support to deliver specific intervention programmes to groups and individuals (Smart Moves, Language, Nessy, Word Wasp, Social Skills/SEAL, Additional guided reading/writing)|
