(Pupil Premium Grant)
Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It was first introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).
Schools are given the autonomy to target these additional funds in order to meet pupils at risk underachieving, based on their circumstances. Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

Key Principles for using Pupil Premium at South Wingfield
In order to meet the wide range of needs of children who receive funding through pupil premium, we have employed a number of different approaches. Teaching assistants deliver specific measurable interventions, which is reviewed termly. This is to target children who require specific support with elements of their maths and literacy work, but also to look at issues such as behaviour and attendance, if these are an issue. This is to help narrow the attainment gap with their peers. In addition to this some funding has been used to deliver Positive Play sessions, which nurture and encourage areas like; positive personal development, social skills and low self-esteem. We also support families with music lessons and uniform and trips.
