Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is the funding the Government allocate each year aimed at supporting pupils who are:

  • Eligible for Free School Meals or have been in the last six years
  • Looked after by the Local Authority
  • Children of Armed Service personnel

Data collected from schools each year, is used to determine the amount of funding a school will receive based directly on eligibility on that given date. Schools decide how the premium is allocated as they are best placed to determine what additional provision should be made.

Please also see our Response and Recovery Plan attached below.

These funds were invested in relevant staffing and other resources to ensure the barriers to educational achievement  for these pupils are addressed. It is also the strategy of East Anglia Schools Trust to pay for these pupils to attend trips and our after school club.

How does Ormiston Herman Academy invest Pupil Premium funding?

At Ormiston Herman Academy, we invest the pupil premium funding in a range of strategies to support learning including extra resources, staff development training and support staff. When investing the funding we look closely at what our children need to reach their potential, this means that the support we give our children is focused on their learning and closing the gap.

How does Ormiston Herman Academy measure the impact of the Pupil Premium?

Children’s progress is monitored each half term and when a child is not making the expected progress we will organise an intervention to support them in their learning. This will be through a range of strategies such as group work in and out of the classroom, precision teaching of skills or through an intervention programme. All interventions are tracked by Class Teachers and Senior Leaders. At the end of the year the pupil premium investment is evaluated for impact. This information is also shared with the School Governors. Please click on the link below to see the impact of Pupil Premium strategies
