What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium was introduced in 2011/2012, its purpose is to support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.

The Pupil Premium 2014 – 2015 was allocated to local authorities and schools with pupils on roll in January 2013 who are known to have been eligible for free school meals, were ‘looked after’ continuously for more than 6 months at any time in the last six years, and service children of i.e.children of parents in the armed services.

Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. Schools have a responsibility to report on their use of Pupil Premium.

Our pupil population represents a divergent range of pupil need encompasing complex medical and physical needs, communication difficulties, behaviour, and emotional needs. Our curriculum and learning environment demonstrates a bespoke approach that reflects this and is demonstrated through the East SILC pathways to leaning; the sensory, towards independence, and the independent curriculum.

Our pupil premium fuding allocation is used across the curriculum to support our most vulnerable pupils on their learning pathways with us. See report detailing allocation and impact.
