Pupil Premium (PPG)

Terling CoE Primary School receives a Pupil Premium Grant for each child who is entitled to receive Free School Meals or who has been entitled within the last six years, and for any 'Looked After Children' We publish online information about how we have used the premium and its impact in the previous academic year and a plan for how we will spend the premium in the current academic year.

School Vision for the Pupil Premium Grant

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most. Our pastoral care and rigorous monitoring and tracking of all pupils helps us to identify any pupils who are at risk of not making sufficient progress and have helped us to plan and implement good intervention strategies.

We are clear in our vision that, whilst academic learning is essential to expenditure, we believe supporting children to be confident, responsible pupils, proud of themselves and their achievements is also a key area to be invested in where identified as a need.

We will ensure that teaching learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils

Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.

Our provision for PPG children may include the following strategies where appropriate:

  • small group tuition;
  • one to one support;
  • focused work and opportunities related to social, emotional or behavioural aspects of learning;
  • access to internal and outside agency support both for the family and for the pupil;
  • alternative resourcing to meet the needs of the individual learner;

How can Parents and carers contribute to the success of the Pupil Premium scheme?

Parent support and involvement is a key factor in raising standards. If you would like help or advice in supporting your child we have an 'open door' policy for parents, so that they can make appointments with the class teacher or Headteacher to discuss any issues of concern they have at any time.

If your child is eligible for Free School Meals or is an infant child and part of the Universal Free School Meals, it is worth registering them, even if they are not going to have a school lunch.  It will have a direct impact on the funding the school receives and we will maximise the support we can provide.

Parents can register their child for Free School Meals if they are in receipt of any of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Income-related Employment Support Allowance
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Child Tax Credit, provided you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income, as assessed by HM Revenue and Customs, that does not exceed £16,190
  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit.
  • Universal Credit (UC), From 1 April 2018, UC claims will be eligible for free school meals where the total net earned income is under £7,400 per year or if your child was eligible for a free school meal on 01/04/18
