Pupil Premium Funding

The pupil premium grant is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It’s a school-level grant that gives schools extra resources to help them meet challenges, including those arising from deprivation.

It’s allocated for schools to:

  • improve the academic outcomes of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities
  • close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers across the country

How many pupils at Masham CE VA  Primary School are eligible for the Pupil Premium?

Currently 7% of pupils at Masham CE VA  Primary School are eligible for the Pupil Premium.


How will the impact of Pupil Premium be measured?

The impact of pupil premium is included in the performance table for schools.  In school the progress and attainment of pupil premium children is monitored and tracked each half term using Insight.  This enables the school to identify the needs of these children and provide support and appropriate intervention. The Pupil Premium Strategy will next be reviewed in November 2021.


What are the principles for the spending of Pupil Premium at Masham CE VA Primary School?

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

• We recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for pupil premium. We reserve the right to allocate the funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being in need.

• Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority groups or individuals.


The range of provision the Governors may consider include:-

• Small group Tuition

• Additional teaching & learning opportunities provided through trained TAs or external agencies

• All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress, moving children to at least age related expectations.

• Pupil premium resources may also be used to target eligible more able children to achieve.

• The Governors of the school will publish information on how they have used their Pupil

Premium Grant (PPG) to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for socially disadvantaged pupils.
