Pupil Premium 2023/2024

The Purpose of Pupil Premium

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


The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools with pupils on roll in October, who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been at any time in the previous six years, as well as 'Service children' and LAC (pupils who are or were previously looked after by the local authority). Schools have the freedom to spend the funding in ways that will provide the best support for the raising the attainment of those pupils.


In 2020/21 the total amount of PPG the school received was £16,450

In 2021/22 the total amount of PPG the school received was £21,140

In 2022/23 the total amount of PPG the school received was £13,890

In 2023/24 the total amount of PPG the school will receive is £19,565 (plus recovery premium)

Statement of Intent for Our Pupil Premium Funding


Our intention is that all pupils at Stocks Green Primary School are given the education, curriculum, support and cultural capital to be successful in their future education and careers.  This statement is irrespective of the pupils’ background or challenges that they have faced in the past or are currently facing.  We aim for all our pupils to become resilient, with the confidence to be successful learners and opportunities to become the best that they can be.  The focus of our pupil premium strategy is to support pupils to achieve these goals and to ensure that they have the range of experiences and opportunities necessary to prepare them for future success.

From September 2023, leaders have created a school improvement plan where the key priorities align closely with the needs of our disadvantaged pupils and that has been designed specifically to address these challenges, alongside wider school priorities.  Therefore, our pupil premium strategy is an integral part of our school improvement process.

As a school, we consider the needs of all our vulnerable pupils and this goes beyond just our disadvantaged pupils, to include other vulnerable pupils, such as those with special educational needs and disabilities, children with low attendance as well as children with a social worker.  The activities outlined in this approach are intended to positively impact on their needs too, regardless of whether they are disadvantaged or not.

As suggested by research undertaken by the EEF (The EEF Guide to the Pupil Premium 2023), high quality teaching should be at the heart of a good quality pupil premium strategy.  The school priority is to ensure that improvements in the quality of teaching are targeted at the areas in which disadvantaged pupils require the most support.  This is because this is proven to have the greatest impact on closing the gap for disadvantaged pupils and will benefit the non-disadvantaged pupils in our school at the same time.

This approach is further supported through the use of high quality tutoring, targeted interventions and wider strategies to impact on the progress and attainment of pupils. 

The school believes in the importance of a whole school focus on the progress and attainment of disadvantaged pupils.  Discussion around this permeates through whole school strategy, planning and operations.  This includes being a focus of teacher appraisals and feedback.  These choices are deliberate to encourage whole school ownership of a shared vision for the promotion of opportunities for disadvantaged pupils.

The school’s approach will be responsive to common challenges as well as individual needs.  This will be rooted in robust assessments of a range of data related to the progress, attainment and attendance of disadvantaged pupils and individuals within the school.  We aim that the approaches we have adopted will complement each other to help pupils excel. 

Our strategy will involve:

  • Ensuring that the needs of children are identified through a range of mechanisms, including assessments, observations of interactions in class and analysis of the full range of data sets available to us.

  • Termly reviews of the individual progress and performance of all disadvantaged children to ensure that our approaches are impactful and are the most appropriate at the time implemented.

  • Improving the quality of teaching and learning in all curriculum areas for all children.

  • Ensuring disadvantaged pupils are challenged in the tasks and activities they receive in each teaching session, so that they can achieve their individual potential.

  • Ensuring that all staff take responsibility for disadvantaged pupils’ outcomes.

Regularly reminding all staff of the need for high expectations of what all pupils, but especially those who are disadvantaged can achieve.



At Stocks Green the provision provided as a result of the Pupil Premium Grant will be aimed at accelerating progress to at least age related expectations in reading, writing and mathematics and to ensure the well-being of all children.


Please see attached below detailed breakdown of intervention and expenditure.


It will be the responsibility of the Pupil Premium Lead to produce regular reports for the Governing Body outlining the following:
• The progress made towards narrowing the gap, by year group, for socially disadvantaged pupils.
• An outline of the provision that was made since the last meeting.
• An evaluation of the cost effectiveness, in terms of the progress made by the pupils receiving a particular provision, when compared with other forms of support.
• The Governors of the school will ensure that there is an annual statement on how the Pupil Premium funding has been used to address the issue of ‘narrowing the gap’, for socially disadvantaged pupils.


Any appeals against this policy will be through the school official complaints procedure.
