Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to close the gap between them and their peers.


"It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility." DfE 


Pupil Premium at Rosedale


At Rosedale Primary School we have high aspirations and expectations for all our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that every child should have the opportunities to achieve whatever they want to achieve and that a child's background should not be a barrier to them achieving great things.


We are determined to ensure that our children are given every chance to realise their full potential. Pupil Premium funding helps us to remove barriers that are sometimes faced by children from low income backgrounds.

Pupil Premium Spending

Our pupil premium money has been used to provide a range of additional support for our children and these interventions, along with quality first teaching, have started to have a positive impact on children's attainment and attitudes to learning.


Targeted interventions are in place across school and these are reviewed regularly by teachers and teaching assistants, and reviewed termly with a member of the Senior Leadership Team to look at the impact that they have had on children's attainment and progress. 


Improving attendance has been a focus of the school. Our Family Support Worker monitors attendance and works with families to support children attending school more regularly and on time. 


How will the school measure the impact of Pupil Premium Spending?


Every term a pupil progress meeting is held between a member of the Senior Leadership Team and each class teacher to look at how children are achieving. Part of this meeting involves looking closely at the progress of children eligible for Pupil Premium and adapting or putting into place new interventions where required. Pupil Premium Funding and the impact of this will be on the agenda at each governors meeting.
