Pupil Premium

Pupil premium is additional to main school funding and is allocated to schools for children who have been registered for free school meals at any time in the last 6 years, who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months, whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces, who have been looked after for one day or more, are adopted or leave care under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order. 


The aim of the funding is to help address the current inequalities which exist between these children and their peers by raising achievement and improving outcomes.

Since September 2012, we have been required to publish online information about how we have used the funding and the impact it has had on the attainment of our disadvantaged children.

At Ellington Primary School:

  • We strive to ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our pupils.
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals; these children still need support.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
  • Impact of pupil premium funding on pupil progress will be reviewed annually to ensure effective deployment of these valuable resources.
