What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers. If a child has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years or has been continuously looked after for at least 6 months (LAC) the school receives an amount per head within their budget. A provision is also made for children who have a parent in the armed services. Leyburn Community Primary School is committed to ensuring maximum progress for all groups of children and strives to close any gaps. 


We have a clear, strategic approach to the use of specific Pupil Premium funding and plans are integrated into wider school support and improvement systems. These are monitored and evaluated regularly and in depth data analysis ensures that the correct support and strategies are identified to maximize progress.  


Strong leadership systems ensure that Pupil Premium funding has the necessary impact. This includes an identified governor having responsibility for Pupil Premium, the Head teacher and Deputy Head teacher leading the development plan and a coordinated strategic leadership approach to implementing plans. All matters relating to the Pupil Premium are reported back to the Governors  ensuring that the school is held to account for the impact of spending.


An inter-threaded matrix approach for the support of PPG pupils is enabling school to develop a strong, comprehensive and sustainable support package which leads to improvements in outcomes for this identified group. 


Key Priority

To close the disadvantage gap by addressing inequalities and raising the attainment of those students in low-income families. 


What do we expect to see:

Targeted additional support strategies which result in every student, however financially disadvantaged, being able to have full access to our curriculum and all our extra-curricular experiences. All students in the target group who are currently underperforming because of the impact of their disadvantaged background will make improved progress leading to narrowing of any attainment gaps.
