Ascot Heath CE Junior School

Pupil Premium

 Pupil Premium Strategy Statement

Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011. It is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months or children of service families. Once a pupil is eligible for Pupil Premium,  they will remain eligible for six years and this grant is a very important component of the school budget.

Parents are encouraged to apply for Pupil Premium if they think they might be eligible, even if their child would prefer to have a packed lunch as the school receives £1,300 per child which is used in a variety of ways to support and enhance children’s learning.  Your child will then benefit from free school educational visits and free after school clubs, in addition to other support in school. If you need help with the application process, please speak to the office. Pupils who are Children Looked After or have been Adopted from Care are entitled to Pupil Premium + (PP+).  The school receives £1900 for each PP+ pupil.

Pupil Premium children are monitored carefully through regular inclusion meetings and pupil progress meetings with the Executive Head Teacher, Head of School and class teachers, with input from the FSA and support staff if necessary;  support is put in place where appropriate.

Pupil Premium Usage 2017-2018

For the current financial year the school received an additional £18,480 in the budget to support 14 pupils.
