The pupil premium grant is funding provided to schools to close the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.
Each school will receive an amount of money for each pupil of compulsory school age who fits the eligibility criteria.
The grant is allocated in line with the financial year, which begins in April. Each year’s allocations are based on data from the previous January’s census. If an eligible pupil joins Rokesly Infants after January census, the school will not receive pupil premium funding for him/her until the following year.
The grant can be spent as each school sees fit, as long as it is used to demonstrably improve the attainment of eligible pupils. Schools do not need to spend an equal amount on each pupil, or use the money for interventions that benefit only eligible pupils.
At Rokesly Infants we use the allocation in many different ways to support pupils effectively and improve their attainment.
