Pupil Premium is additional school funding from the Government to provide additional

support to pupils on roll from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible

for free school meals (FSM) or those who have been in receipt of free school meals in

the past 6 years. The funding is also available for children in Local Authority care who

have been looked after for more than 6 months, adopted children or children of service

personnel.

Rationale      

Reinwood Junior School recognises that all children regardless of background should

have equal access to a curriculum which will enable them to reach their potential.

The pupil premium is a Government initiative that targets extra money to pupils from

deprived backgrounds, which research shows underachieve compared to their

non-deprived peers.                                                                                                                                               

The Government have used pupils entitled to free school meals as an indicator for

deprivation, and have deployed a fixed amount of money to schools per pupil, based on

the number of pupils registered for free school meals. At Reinwood Junior School we

will be using the indicator of those eligible for free school meals and those in Local

Authority Care as our target children to 'narrow the gap' regarding attainment.                                                                                    

The  Government are not dictating how schools should spend this money, but are clear

that schools will need to employ the strategies that they know will support their pupils to increase their attainment, and 'diminish the gap'.

As a school we are accountable for diminishing the gap, and there is a planned reform

to the school performance tables to include new measures that show the attainment of

pupils who receive the pupil premium compared with their peers.
