Pupil Premium

2017/18

For the academic year 2017-2018,  Everton Heath Primary School has been allocated £1,320 pupil premium funding.

The pupil premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The amount received is dependent on the number of children who receive free school meals. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.

The following is a summary of what EHPS consider to be the main barriers to learning for children eligible for Pupil Premium.

  • Under-developed reading, spelling and numeracy skills of some of our disadvantaged pupils
  • Low self-esteem and related social skills in identified pupils
  • Financial difficulties of disadvantaged families

2016/17

The pupil premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The amount received is dependent on the number of children who receive free school meals. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.

For the year 2016-2017,  Everton Lower School was allocated £1,320 to spend on initiatives to ensure that children eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant reach their full potential – academically, socially, emotionally and behaviourally.

For 2016/17 we allocated the money in the following way:
• Materials to support the implementation of Phonics intervention groups
• Intervention groups for literacy and numeracy
• Funding for extra-curricular visits and clubs

If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the school office (in confidence) to register them.

Even if you do not wish your child to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child.
