The Pupil Premium is allocated to our school based on the number of children who;
- Are eligible for free school meals
- Has previously been entitled to free school meals in the past six years
- Looked after children
- Are recently adopted
- Children who have parents/carers in the Armed Forces are allocated Services funding.
This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure these children reach their full potential, both academically and socially. King William Street has a Pupil Premium Policy which explains how this funding will be used in school. Click on the link here to view the policy.
Information for Parents
Currently, all children from Reception to Y2 are eligible for a daily free school meal thanks to the government’s recent implementation of the Universal Infant Free School meals initiative.
In addition to this, some children would be eligible anyway for Free School Meals due to their parent(s)/carer(s) having a net income of £7400 or under, effective from 1 April 2018. If your child was previously entitled to free school meals but is no longer, they will still receive pupil premium based on the 'Ever 6' qualification
If you think your child could be eligible whether they are in Blue Whale, Tiger, Puffin classes or Panda, Polar Bear, Zebra or Leopard classes, don’t delay - contact Mrs O’Brien email@example.com or Mrs Clarke firstname.lastname@example.org straight away.
Pupil Premium Funding Review 2017/18
Pupil Premium Funding Plan for 2018/19
In January 2018, the school commissioned a Pupil Premium Review which identified that 'The school is making very effective use of the PPG and has excellent strategies and systems in place to support PP pupils. This report highlights these and identifies areas for the school to consider to make further improvements. The high quality, strategic and proactive leadership that is evident and the ethos within the school means that it is in a very good position to make further progress.' Following this an action plan to address the action points was drawn up and can be found below.
