Pupil Premium Information

Wyvil Primary School and Centre for Speech and Language Impairment


Background Information

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is an amount of money (currently £1320 per eligible pupil) allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years.  Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children of service personnel.  Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit.  However, they are responsible for how they use the additional funding to support pupils.


Use of the Pupil Premium at Wyvil

At Wyvil Primary School and Centres for Children with Speech and Language Impairment and Autism, we use the Pupil Premium to support individuals and groups of children who fall into the categories outlined above.  The school also use the pupil premium to support other individuals and groups of children who the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged.  This is done through a needs analysis and referral system.  The academic progress of children eligible for the Pupil Premium is carefully monitored using an internal tracking system which informs decision making regarding appropriate interventions.  Wider school experience such as attendance at clubs and opportunities to engage in extra curricular activities is also carefully monitored to ensure pupils at social disadvantage have a rich school experience.
