Pupil Premium Funding

Please find Ansdell Primary School's Pupil Premium Strategy Statement for 2023 to 2024 here


The pupil premium is a government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from deprived backgrounds. Research shows that many of these pupils underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers. The premium is provided to enable these pupils to be supported to reach their potential. The Government has used pupils entitled to free school meals (FSM), looked after children and service children as indicators of deprivation, and have provided a fixed amount of money for schools per pupil based on the number of pupils registered for FSM over a rolling six year period. We use the indicator of those eligible for FSM as well as identified vulnerable groups as our target children to ‘close the gap’ regarding attainment. The progress of these children is tracked closely and reported to the governing body to ensure we are meeting their needs in the best possible way.
