Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Summary

In the financial year 2016-2017, Cedars Primary School received a total of £71,320 in Pupil Premium. Please see our Pupil Premium Report which identifies how the money was spent and its impact.  In the academic year 2017-2018 Cedars Primary School will receive a minimum of £55,683. The impact of this and any subsequent funding will be reported at the end of the academic year.

Schools are required to publish details of their Pupil Premium allocation and how they spend the funding on an annual basis. The Pupil Premium sum allocated to the school is calculated according to the number of pupils in school receiving free school meals or who have received free school meals in the last 6 years, the number of children who have been looked after for more than six months, and also children of service personnel.

The purpose of the Pupil Premium is to make funding available so that schools can ensure that pupils of all backgrounds have an equal opportunity to make good progress. The DfE guidance states that “It is for the schools to determine how the Pupil Premium … is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils within their responsibility.”
