Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011, and is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support children from low-income families, who are entitled to Free School Meals, are looked after by the local authority or are from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

It is for individual schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, as each school is best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

At Mary Elton, our Pupil Premium money is spent by contributing towards various activities and initiatives within the school, specifically:
  • our Learning Mentors, who keep in contact with the children on a daily basis, to monitor their well being;
  • our Parent Support Partners, who liaise with our families;
  • contributions to school trips, school camp and educational visits;
  • additional educational support through small groups or on an individual basis.

Our KS2 Pupil Premium children attained better than their peers in our school and nationally, when comparing those achieving Level 4 across all subjects.

Our number of Pupil Premium children are low, so using percentages may not always be the most useful way to show Pupil Premium data. We do monitor Pupil Premium children and act on trends, individuals or groups, if we know they need specific or different interventions. We review interventions regularly and any that do not have an impact are changed and another one is put in its place.

For the Academic year 2013/14, Mary Elton received £28,500 in Pupil Premium funding.

Year on year, our pupil premium children are achieving improved results.  On average the progress of these children is greater than the average of the whole school in reading, writing and mathematics.  We have therefore closed the gap in all three areas.
