Pupil Premium Spending at Middlewich Primary School
At Middlewich Primary we use the pupil premium grant to narrow the gap between groups of pupils. We aim to raise levels of attainment for those eligible for free school meals, those in the care of the local authority and children who have a parent in the armed forces. Historically and nationally, these pupils do not achieve in line with their peers and we therefore use the pupil premium to support children so they make accelerated progress as they move through school.
"The government believes that the pupil premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as 'Ever 6 FSM')."
Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

As a school we have a duty to inform you of how we spend the grant and 'the impact it has of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils at the school, in respect of whom grant funding was allocated'
Please look at the following documents for information about the levels of funding and impact. The Pupil Premium Strategy can also be downloaded below.
