Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is funding provided by the government, intended to address the achievement gap between children identified as disadvantaged due to circumstances in their lives beyond their control.

Children who are eligible for this additional funding are those who receive free school meals (FSM) and those children who are adopted or in care.  The money is allocated directly to the school and the school is able to determine how this money is spent best to support the needs of the individul pupils.  

At Clifton-upon-Dunsmore Primary School, the Pupil Premium is used to ensure that all pupils reach their full potential regardless of their social situation. Pupil premium resources may also be used to target more able children.

How much money do we recieve?

Clifton-upon-Dunsmore Primary School receives £1345 per child who is eligible for FSM, £2345 for adopted or looked after children and £310 for children who have parents in service.   The estimated allocation for this year is £45,290.

What is the Funding used for?

At Clifton-upon-Dunsmore Primary School we ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils. Additional appropriate provision is made for pupils that belong to our vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed. Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. This will be through whole school monitoring of data, assessments and discussions with the class teacher. We recognise that not all pupils that receive Pupil Premium funding will be socially disadvantaged.


We hold half-termly monitoring meetings in order to evaluate the impact of the interventions that are put in place to support all of our pupils.  Parents of children receiving support are included in termly feedback meetings and they are fully supportive of the process and recognise the benefits this gives their children. Governors updates are held termly.
