Kestrels enjoyed a mini competition in their archery lesson. Year groups 3-6 will all have the opportunity to learn this term as this is brilliant way to allow children that may not excel in the usual team sports, to shine. Fantastic shooting Kestrels! https://t.co/o8kBg7mF4B

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities. Schools receive this funding to support their eligible pupils and narrow the attainment gap between them and their peers. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years or have been in care for 6 months or longer. 

The information we require from parents and carers is obtained by the completion of the letter below. We share this information with the Department for Education (DfE) to use throughout their student’s enrolment at Cooks Spinney Primary Academy and Nursery.

For the 2020/21 financial year, funding for the Pupil Premium (per pupil) is as follows:

Disadvantaged Pupils

  • Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 as recorded as Ever 6 FSM: £1,345
  • Looked After Children (LAC) defined in Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English Local Authority: £2,345
  • Children who have ceased to be Looked After by a Local Authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residents order: £2,345

Service Children

  • Pupils in year groups reception to year 11 recorded as Ever 6 service chid or in receipt of child pension from the Ministry of Defence: £310

Eligibility for free school meals is used as the main measure of deprivation at pupil level to decide on how much funding each school receives.

The Headteacher and Local Governing Board is accountable for the impact of pupil premium funding in the following ways:

  • performance tables, which show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers
  • requiring schools to publish details online each year of how they are using the pupil premium and the impact it is having on pupil achievement
  • the Ofsted inspection framework, where inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, and in particular those who attract the pupil premium

Each school must publish a report of the impact of pupil premium on attainment of disadvantaged pupils at the end of each academic year.
