Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the pupil premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).  Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel

Miles Coverdale Primary School ensures that every child at the school receives the best support available.  The Pupil Premium money helps us to achieve this by allowing us to focus resources in the most appropriate way so that we can help those children that need additional help and support. 

Miles Coverdale Primary School Pupil Premium Strategy 2017-2018

The school has a number of methods in place for monitoring progress of pupils and the impact of the pupil premium on eligible pupils through comprehensive monitoring, tracking and analysis.

The pupil premium strategy will be reviewed in April 2018.
