The Pupil Premium is an amount of money that is given to schools in addition to their delegated budget, to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals and their wealthier peers who are not. The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or who have been eligible at any point within the last six years (known as the Ever 6 measure) and to children who have been Looked After continuously for more than six months. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, we will be held accountable by Ofsted for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families. We are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Pupil Premium and the extra support that they receive. Below are documents explaining how Weston Point uses the Pupil Premium funding.

In 2016-2017 the funding is being used to support some extra 'teaching and learning assistant' hours to enhance provision for all pupils and to help us to sustain and further improve rates of progress and attainment. The funding enables us to continue to provide small teaching groups utilising TAs and teachers for focussed group work. Some children may also receive extra support or intervention, working in pairs or one-to-one. Mr Flanders has taken on a new role Senco/Safeguarding which is now a non teaching role
