Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Read more about our Pupil Premium allocation, and what the impact of the spending has been, in the report below:

Pupil Premium Statement Schools are currently given a Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) of £1,320 per pupil for those whose families who have registered for FSM. This includes any child who has been registered for FSM at any point during the past 6 years (Ever 6). The children of members of the armed forces are also entitled to this funding. Schools also receive £1,900 for each pupil who has been looked after for 1 day or more; has been adopted from care or has left care under a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangement order.

The money is given to schools to support them in enabling all pupils to reach or exceed the nationally expected level for their age. Each school may decide how best to use the funding and they are held accountable for how it has been used to support pupils from low income families.

The key purpose of our Pupil Premium funding is to enable all the pupils to reach their full potential. We work with our families and colleagues to make sure everyone involved with the child has high aspirations.

We recognise that barriers to achievement take a variety of forms and will do whatever it takes to support a child, both in and out of the classroom. We use all our resources to ensure that every child has an equal opportunity to become an empowered learner. In order to achieve this we offer our children a wide range of opportunities, we always make sure these are accessible for everyone.

The impact of the support mentioned above has been positive with 82% attaining expected standard or above in Reading, 73% in writing and 64% in Maths. 8/11 (73%) made good progress in all three areas and 100% of pupils made good progress in at least one area. Due to the small cohorts in our school individual data is not contained on this site to ensure pupils cannot be identified. If you require further information please contact the Executive Headteacher.


The pupils eligible in the year 2017-18 will continue to receive targeted intervention to ensure the gap continues to close between Pupil Premium pupils and non pupil premium pupils.

Support intended for 2017/18

Pupil Premium funding will be used to continue to top up funding for Cover supervisor and Learning Support hours provided to all classes and for intervention groups that run to help support children’s learning. Some of the funds will be used for Maths interventions as Maths is a priority this year and the progress made in Maths in 2016-17 was lower than the other subjects. 

Teacher's have all analysed the areas of development for each Pupil premium child in their class and specific time is put aside each week to support that child in closing any gaps in learning.

Pupil Premium money is also used to fund Free School Milk for all children who are in receipt of Free School Meals and also to fund art therapy sessions.


Irrespective of ability, we recognise the importance of ensuring this funding is specifically used for Pupil Premium eligible children at Seagrave Village Primary School and we continually strive to ensure our Pupil Premium eligible children achieve and progress well.

Our assessment of the quality of this provision is based on continual monitoring by the Executive Headteacher and Head of School and also by regular progress meetings with all Teachers and Cover Supervisors.

Below is a breakdown of the progress made by the current Pupil Premium pupils. Names and Year groups have been removed to protect the identity of these children.
