Pupil Premium

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

Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units.

At Sidlesham Primary School

We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of the pupils.

We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups; this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.


Sidlesham Primary School make provision for children by:

  • Providing small group work with an experienced teacher focused on overcoming gaps in learning

  • Additional teaching and learning opportunities provided through trained Teaching Assistants or external agencies.

  • Specific Intervention Programmes e.g. supporting children to overcome problems caused by Dyslexia.

  • Acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards, particularly in reading and mathematics.

  • All our work through the pupil premium will be aimed at accelerating progress moving children to at least age related expectations. Initially this will be in English and Mathematics.

  • Pupil premium resources may also be used to target able children on FSM to achieve above the expected national standard at the end of KS2.

Sidlesham Primary School will publish information on how they have used their Pupil Premium Grant to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for socially disadvantaged pupils.  Data informing parents of spend and the impact of the pupil premium in school will be provided, including where the allocation in any given financial year was targeted to and the impact of this allocation.
