Premiums and Grants
- Information about Pupil Premium
The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and the children of armed service personnel.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used.

Pupil Premium Funding 2017-2018
Total Allocation = this figure is currently unknown as we are awaiting the budget for the later part of the school year funding for the first 7 months of the year is £33,121 (this doesn’t include funding for looked after children). When the new budget is set, 5/12 of the pupil premium figure will be added to this amount along with any other looked after children premiums received.
The school summarises the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school as:
- Under-developed reading, writing and numeracy skills of some of our disadvantaged pupils leading to lower attainment in line with national
- Oral language skills in EYFS and Year 1 are lower for pupils eligible for PP than other pupils. This slows reading and writing progress in subsequent years.
- a proportion of children have social and emotional difficulties that prevent them from engaging with learning, at times impacting on their learning and that of others within their class
Below is a summary highlighting the key areas that we plan to spend the pupil premium, please see the full report below for a more detailed description.
- Offer children a full time Nursery place to ensure a flying start for Weobley Children.
- Maintain smaller single form entry classes rather than mixed classes to ensure a focussed teaching approach – this will be achieved by employing an additional class teacher over the actual requirement.
- Create an ‘Opt into Learning’ provision for children that are struggling to engage with the learning in a classroom environment – a TA is always available throughout the day to work with children on a 1:1 or small group basis to re-engage the children with a view to re-integrating them back into the class.
- Have a TA in each class to focus on improving the outcomes for children in Reading, Writing and Maths. The TAs will work with a range of children including low and high prior attainers. The TAs will also work with a whole class, allowing the class teacher to focus on smaller groups.
- Have a TA with time dedicated to specific targeted interventions.
