Pupil Premium & Catch Up Premium

Pupil Premium – Demonstrating Impact and Reporting Outcomes

Schools are required to publish details of their Pupil Premium allocation, how they plan to spend the allocation in the current year, how the previous year’s allocation was spent and the effect of the expenditure on the attainment of those pupils for whom the funding was allocated.

At Southwark Primary School, we endeavour to equip our pupils with a secure foundation of knowledge and skills to give them success for today as well as prepare them to become lifelong learners by developing a relentless curiosity about the world around them, regardless of their starting point in life or personal circumstances. The government believes this additional funding is the best way to tackle those inequalities to enable children to have the best outcomes.

Which pupils are entitled to Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) is provided to all schools to support pupils within the following categories:

  • Pupils who are currently registered for Free School Meals.
  • Pupils who have been registered for Free School Meals at any point during the last six years;
  • Pupils in the care of a Local Authority;
  • Pupils who have been adopted but have been looked after for one day or more, or were adopted from care on or after 30th December 2005 and left care under:
  • A Special Guardianship Order on or after 30th December 2005
  • A Residence Order on or after 14th October 1991
  • Pupils whose parents are serving with the UK Armed Forces

Southwark Primary has a significant number of pupils who experience disadvantage in social or economic terms. We use funding in a range of ways to support all pupils including those who qualify for Pupil Premium. Each year we put together a comprehensive plan of interventions that we feel will best allow our pupils to meet their full potential. At the end of the academic year we then analyse the impact of the interventions and strategies used to ensure they provide best value, ensuring progress has been made. The school’s results show that we are very successful in meeting their needs.

 

What is the Catch Up Premium?

The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time. Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the guidance on curriculum expectations for the next academic year. Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances.
