Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Grant


The Government introduced Pupil Premium with the aim of increasing social mobility, reducing the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally , and enabling more pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to have higher aspirations for their academic future.

It is allocated to schools for -

  • pupils who have been registered for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years (knows as 'Ever 6 FSM).
  • Children Adopted from Care.
  • Children in Care
  • Children of service personnel.

At Duloe School we have received £29,460 based on the number of pupils who were in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM), were in local authority care or were from Service families when the October  2014 School Census was taken.

The Government believes that Headteachers and School Leaders should decide how to use the Pupil Premium. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through :

  • the performance tables which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers.
  • the Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium.
  • the reports for parents that schools have to publish online.
