What is pupil premium?
The pupil premium is Government funding for the specific purpose of improving the attainment and progress of pupils from low-income families. Children who have received free school meals over the past 6 years qualify for pupil premium funding. It is also available for pupils that have been ’looked after’ for more than 6 months.
Schools are able to spend pupil premium funding as they see fit. However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the funding to support children from low income families.
Coley Primary School tracks pupil progress and attainment on a termly basis (X6 per year). We also measure the success of our pupils against national and local data particularly at the end of each key stage to ensure we have high expectations and an accurate picture of our pupil’s learning.
