How we have spent our Pupil Premium for our free school meal children.
Pupil Premium was introduced by the government in April 2011 and is a payment given to schools, from the Local Education Authority, to help support children from families on lower incomes - those eligible for free school meals. The money is spent in school to help promote the educational well-being and outcomes for children, regardless of background or family income.

There were 9 pupil premium children at the end of KS2 in 2016. 22% of our pupil premium children were on the SEN register and 67% came from other schools during KS2 with 44% arriving in year 5 or 6. Attendance was also a barrier to 33% of our pupil premium children.
However, 67% of our pupil premium children achieved expected in reading,writing and maths compared to 60% non disadvantaged nationally.Attendance is now on the increase due to rigorous monitoring and the employment of an Educational Welfare Officer.
Future Spending of Pupil Premium in 2017 - 2018:
1. We will continue last year's successful use of Pupil Premium and also pay for two teaching assistants to provide one to one support for FSM children 1.5 days a week .
2. New resources for our school: reading books, Ipads, and new laptops.
3. We will also continue to support pupils to attend residential programmes to develop their wider experiences of life.
4. Counselling service and therapeutic services
5. We will continue to employ an Educational Welfare Officer (EWO) in order to raise our attendance figure.
6. Offer money for clothing
The main barriers to learning for our pupil premium children have been their SEND requirements and for a small number their attendance due to a number of reasons.
The next review will be in March 2018
At Burton on the Wolds Primary School we spend our Pupil Premium money in a range of ways.

Pupil Premium Report - 1 April 2013 - 31 March 2014
Pupil Premium is paid in respect of two policies - which are to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils, closing the gap between them and their peers, and to support children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.
The main focus of the Pupil Premium spend for Burton on the Wolds Primary School has been through the employment of two members of staff to work with vulnerable groups to offer interventions and support. This has facilitated these pupils access to all areas of education, but in particular that of reading, writing and mathematics, to raise attainment levels.
