Pupil Premium

Our school is allocated additional funding through the Pupil Premium Grant every financial year. Our Pupil Premium Report (available below) outlines what the Pupil Premium is and how it has been used to support both individuals and groups of pupils at Westdene Primary School during the past academic year. The impact of the outcomes of individual interventions has also been evaluated.

What is 'Pupil Premium'?

The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011. It is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils. Funding is paid, for the most part, to schools according to the number of pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years or have been in care for six months or longer. [Ofsted, 2014].

The support that is provided at Westdene Primary is planned and organised by the Inclusion Coordinator and by the Pupil Premium Coordinator.

As a school, we are commited to ensuring:

  • that eligability for Pupil Premium is never confused with low ability
