Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is additional money allocated to schools by the government to support pupils from low-income families. The aim is to narrow the disadvantage gap by addressing inequalities and raising the academic achievement of this particular cohort of pupils.

 

The pupils who attract this funding are those children who have free school meals and or have done so in the last six years, are children of service families or are 'Looked after Children'.

 

Schools have autonomy to determine how best to use this funding. There is, however, an obligation for all schools to publish, annually, a report on how the pupil premium funding has been spent or is planned to be spent and what has been the impact on pupil premium pupils' academic performance.

 

At Riverside School, our priority is to ensure that all pupils, from all backgrounds, have an equal chance of success. Our Pupil Premium funding is used to target pupils with additional intervention and support according to their needs, in order to:

  • improve their levels of attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics
  • close achievement and attainment gaps in relation to their peers (non-Pupil Premium)
  • have full access to the curriculum
  • access extra-curricular provision
