The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is targeted school funding given to publicly funded schools in England, including Free Schools to raise the attainment of an identified group of pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who are or have been:
- registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (£1320)
- a looked after child in the care of the local authority or recently adopted from care (£1900)
- a service child (£300)

Pupil Premium spending
RFPS uses our Pupil Premium money to provide:
- Further resources to enable better teaching and learning particularly in Maths, English and ICT
- Group or 1:1 additional teaching opportunities from our Inclusion Leader
- Additional support and resources for SEND/ G&T children
- Speech and Language support
- SEN support through external agencies e.g. Autism support
- Enrichment Activities
- Parent workshops to facilitate better home learning opportunities
A detailed Pupil Premium report was produced and presented to Governors in July 2017. A summarised version of this report is available here.
The full report has not been published on this website as with only a small number of pupil premium children currently, it is possible that individual children could be identified. This report or information from it as applicable to the individual circumstances is available on request from the Headteacher.
Pupil Premium Strategy
RFPS considers it vital to plan ahead in how it will use the Pupil Premium money which it receives. We do this through our pupil premium strategy. This is reviewed regularly during the year in order that the individual needs of the children are met. Please click below if you would like to see our planned strategy for 2017-2018.
