The Pupil Premium
As part of the way in which the Government funds schools, there is an allocation of money called “The Pupil Premium”. Allocation of this money is based on a number of factors but the main criterion (and the only one which currently applies to Bletchingdon Parochial CE Primary School) is eligibility for free school meals. This stands aside from the government’s new initiative to provide free school meals for all children in Reception and Key Stage 1.
There is no set guidance on the way in which this funding should be allocated. It is the responsibility of individual schools to identify pupil needs and ensure the funding is used to meet these. The Governors of Bletchingdon have agreed additional staffing to support the delivery of intervention programmes as well as resources to support the teaching and learning of those pupils eligible for free school meals, who we judge would most benefit. As well as this, funding has been used to subsidise trips and will continue to do so this year. As a Church of England school, the Governors recognise the value placed upon inclusion and access for all. Our school values life experiences and our staff know how much the children gain from visits to aid their learning.
