Pupil premium funding was introduced in 2011 and is given to school based on the number of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). This additional funding includes all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.
In 2019-20, 58% (341 pupils) trigger this funding mechanism. The money received is £380,000, which is a similar amount to last year. This money is targeted by school towards ensuring that the children in receipt of this funding make accelerated progress and have improved attainment.
At the end of KS2 in 2019, the children in Park end Primary School in receipt of pupil premium funding achieved a positive progress score in reading, writing and mathematics. This means that they did better at Key Stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.
