Pupil Premium and Barriers for Learning

  • Pupil Premium

    Pupil Premium Funding 

    The Pupil Premium is ‘additional funding’ for publicly funded schools in England.  It is to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers not just locally but nationally.

    Rossmere Primary School receives pupil premium funding as part of its budget based on the number of children who:

    • Are eligible for Free School Meals
    • Have been eligible for Free School Meals at any time during their time at Primary School
    • Are children of services personnel
    • Have been in or in Looked After Care or a Child Arrangement Order (Previously known as a residence order)

    Pupil Premium Strategy 2020 – 2021

    This is being reviewed in Autumn 2020 in response to Covid19 as disadvantaged children have been found to be more adversely affected than other pupils both locally and nationally.

    A review of achievement and progress data for disadvantaged children, shows that the gap has not narrowed sufficiently and may have widened during Covid19. Therefore a complete rethink of Pupil Premium priorities was required.
