East Markham County Primary Pupil Premium Policy Statement 2016-17


At East Markham Primary all members of staff, governors and teaching assistants accept responsibility for disadvantaged pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within our school environment. The PPG (Pupil Premium Grant) will form a vital part of the process to provide provision to close the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.

The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced in April 2011. It is allocated funding from the Government for low income families who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) during the last 6 years or for children who have been looked after (LAC) continuously for more than six months

It is the responsibility of the governors to explain pupil premium expenditure to parents/carers in the form of an annual statement which will be available on the school website.

This report aims to detail information on how Pupil Premium has been used within East Markham Primary. The report will detail the attainment and progress of pupils at particular points in their primary education along with how the intervention has been supported by the additional funding.

Reports to governors will also detail the progress made towards closing the gap in attainment and this will be supported by reported data and academic progress.

The responsibility for the report will be that of the Headteacher who will be asked to report on the intervention in place for key pupils and the impact that intervention has had. This report will be supported by key providers of inclusion services within East Markham Primary School.
