Pupil Premium is whereby additional funding is given to schools to raise attainment of “disadvantaged pupils” and close the gap with their peers.
- have been eligible for free school meals in the past 6 years
- been in care for 6 months or longer
At the moment, the support for secondary pupils is around £900 each. Schools determine how to spend this funding, so I would inquire about putting in a bid to support Pupil Premiums in D&T as well.
When monitoring your pupils’ progress, ensure you specifically track your PPs and have strategies in place to ensure their progress catches up with their peers.
