The Pupil Premium
The pupil premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low income and other disadvantaged families and their peers. Schools have discretion to choose how to spend this funding in order to support raising the attainment of these more vulnerable pupils. The pupil premium was first granted in April 2011 according to the number of children in a school who were taking Free School Meals.
Funding is now allocated according to the number of children in a school who have been registered for Free School Meals at any time in the preceding 6 years. Funding is also provided for Looked After Children and Forces children at a lower rate.
As from September 2014, the DfE calls this group of children ‘Disadvantaged’ and any child not in this category comes under ‘Other’.
Please see the documents below to see how much Dr Triplett’s has been allocated, how we have used it and the impact on standards.
Our Governor for Disadvantaged Children is Mrs Helen Dimmock.
If you would like any more information, please contact Mrs Pauline Byles, Associate Headteacher or Mrs Dimmock through the school office.
