The Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget based on the number of children currently eligible free school meals or who have received free school meals within the past 6 years; these are termed Ever 6 pupils. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. Currently the allocation is £1320 per child.
In 2019/20 the school should receive £105,900 in Pupil Premium allocations.
West Street has a named Pupil Premium Lead, Mrs Gupta, who also oversees interventions, SEND and inclusion. Each year we complete a pupil premium audit and review of progress and impact. Mrs Gupta then produces a provision map detailing support for individual children and reviews the impact of this.
Our Pupil Premium governor is Mrs Carole Shorrock and she meets with Alysia Gupta to review how the funding is spent and the outcomes and impact.
