What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that we can support our disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. Pupil Premium refers to the £1320 school receives for any pupil who is eligible for free school meals (or has been within the last 6 years). There is also additional funding available for children who are looked after or were adopted from care and children with parents in the armed forces.

How Is Pupil Premium Money Spent At Stamford Bridge Primary School?
Please see this year’s Strategy Statement below for the details on how we intend to spend the money. We will not necessarily spend the money on the same things every year; we will see how well different interventions work and if it is appropriate for the current year’s pupils.
We are committed to ensuring each child that is eligible to receive Pupil Premium money benefits from the funding, regardless of their ability. Given the right learning environment, we believe that all pupils can flourish and reach their full potential. A key objective when deciding how to spend the Pupil Premium Funding is to narrow the gap between pupil groups. We believe an effective way to do this is through targeted, one to one support. A large amount of our funding is therefore spent this way.
At Stamford Bridge Primary School:
- we ensure that all teaching is good or better and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils
- we ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups; this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
- in making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged
- we also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate pupil premium to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged
- pupil premium funding is allocated following a needs analysis which identifies priority classes, groups or individuals.
